Must read for Black Parents March 30 2006
By Nehesi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Janice Hale writes about her experiences being a single mother and an educator by profession who was trying to ensure that her son was not only treated fairly, but taught in such a way as to ensure his success since she wasn't able to spare the time to do it herself. Although a lot of what she writes about is ethnically-specific (i.e. dealing with her son's teachers pre-concieved ideas about Black youth), there's one part that is applicable to children of any ethnicity: Parents who have the time or the resources to tutor their children had kids who were better students.

Great Information, Poor Philosophy May 28 2009
By Slurpee Drinker 22 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed this book on inner-city education immensely, despite disagreement with the author on certain solutions (for example, making the church a purely utilitarian instrument of educational change).

Hale gives a realistic and tough assessment of African-American education and does offer several realistic solutions to educational problems in the inner-city.

The book, although academically-challenging, is written in a conversational tone and is easy to comprehend.
