Overview

Violence, Race, and Low Pupil Achievement in Inner City Schools.

Few if any observers of inner city education have dared to address the key questions so frankly and in a manner so contrary to the views of the politically correct. How do we explain the terrible achievement of black pupils at all school levels and at all socio-economic levels? What about violence and security in these schools? Is it true that some inner city school administrators will do anything to keep the public from discovering the real situation?

What is the truth about affirmative action programs? How do poor pupil values affect their actual school achievement? Are there significant differences between white teachers and school administrators, and black teachers and school administrators? Have black leaders helped or hurt black pupil achievement? What happens when blacks control their own school systems? What does the future of urban education look like?

    Title of book is misleading

    The title of this book does not indincate the slop of work, or lack of research done. The author of this book claims to use data from several sources that brings him to his hypothesis of what is causing the real problem in America's inner city schools. The author tries to associate his interpretation of data in opinionated matter. If your a teacher, administrator or parent, I wouldn't suggest to waster your money on this poorly authored book.
