Overview

The Trouble with Black Boys

For many years to come, race will continue to be a source ofcontroversy and conflict in American society. For many of us itwill continue to shape where we live, pray, go to school, andsocialize. We cannot simply wish away the existence of race orracism, but we can take steps to lessen the ways in which thecategories trap and confine us. Educators, who should be committedto helping young people realize their intellectual potential asthey make their way toward adulthood, have a responsibility to helpthem find ways to expand identities related to race so that theycan experience the fullest possibility of all that they may become.In this brutally honest—yet ultimately hopeful—bookPedro Noguera examines the-many facets ofürace'in schools andsociety and reveals what it will take to improve outcomes for allstudents. From achievement gaps to immigration, Noguera offers arich and compelling picture of a complex issue that affects all ofus.

One of the nation's most important voices on the subject ofequity and social justice in education, Noguera has never beenafraid to take on the tough issues—yet always offers reasonfor hope in the face of seemingly intractable challenges. This bookpulls together his thoughts on a wide range of educationalsubjects—from school improvement to school violence to racialpolitics. Noguera examines the link between racial identity andschool-related behavior, the significance of race in the racialachievement gap, and the educational future of Latino immigrants.He discusses the role of leaders in restoring public faith ineducation, recommends investing in the social capital of studentsand their parents, and ultimately proposes how to reclaim thepromise of public education.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Influenced by culture and aware of the lack of prospects forthem,black boys in particular, but minority students of all kinds,make the kinds of poor choices that fulfill the low expectations oftheir teachers and the broader society. Education professor Nogueraexaminesthe cultural, societal—and personal—factors that createthe stubborn link between race and poverty. In this compellingseries of essays, Noguera cites research and his own personalexperience—as a minority, a father, and an educator—to explorethe myriad ways that young black and Hispanic males are expected torun afoul of middle-class American norms and often do. Heargues that public schools, despite their abysmal record, are theonly institutions with the access and resources to turn aroundtroubling social trends. He points to research comparing thedisciplinary tactics of public schools and prisons, institutionsthat have far too much in common with so many male minoritystudents dropping out of schools and landing in prison. Athoughtful look at issues of race and educationalequity.—Vanessa Bush (Booklist Review, May 8,2008)

“Explores strategies that can change the culture andstructure of schools to support the aspirations and identities ofminority students.”—N.N. Arnez, emeritus, HowardUniversity Recommended
