The Black male achievement gap is real: They are nearly twice as likely to drop out of high school as their white counterparts; twice as likely to be held back in elementary school; three times as likely to be suspended from school; and half as likely as white male students to graduate college in four years. That crisis even touched the lives of the Ivy League trained psychiatrist and lawyer couple who wrote this book. Their response to their own son's problems inspired them to construct guidelines for parents, teachers, and others concerned with a human problem that can resolved. Editor's recommendation.
