Overview

African American Students in Urban Schools: Critical Issues and Solutions for Achievement offers readers a critical yet comprehensive examination of the issues confronting the education experiences of African American students, affecting their achievement in urban school systems and beyond. While some of the ideas presented in this edited volume are not new, it is one of the first books to present a complete picture. Across education disciplines (general teacher education, school counseling, school psychology, gifted education, career and technical education, higher education, and others), the collection of chapters presents theoretical, conceptual, and research based on evidence of the unique challenges facing urban African American students and illustrating what can be done to reduce, if not diminish, these challenges. African American Students in Urban Schools will help readers better understand some of the complex and multifaceted dilemmas faced by today's urban school systems. An equal hope for this edited volume is that it will motivate readers to make a commitment to improve urban schools for the betterment of African American students.
