Education Injustice Book Signing
October 27, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm UTC+0Free
Education Injustice is occurring in most public schools especially for black males. Unfairly excluded from gifted programs and college preparatory courses, black males are overrepresented in special education classes and are suspended and expelled more frequently than other students for less serious offenses. Also, black males are at the bottom of the achievement gap and have the highest dropout rates of any group of students. The dropout rate for black males is alarmingly high, which places them squarely on the school to prison pipeline.
In Education Injustice, Augustus Corbett draws on recent scholarship from diverse fields to show black parents how to help their sons excel in public school and get off the school to prison pipeline despite facing severe inequities. This timely book explores:
- How public schools mistreat black males
- How to prepare your black males for academic excellence from birth
- How to develop a wholesome home that brings out the best in black males
- How to recognize good and bad teachers
- AND MUCH, MUCH MORE
You must have this book as a reference guide if you are trying to navigate a black male student through public school. Remember, with the right support and preparation,
YOUNG BLACK MALES CAN AND WILL EXCEL IN SCHOOL!
This book does two things. First, it shows the reader exactly how public schools mistreat and fail black male students. Second, it shows the reader what urgent actions parents must take to prevent their sons from being another victim of this mistreatment and failure. Parents who read this book will know how to become fierce advocates for their sons.
