The authors argue that understanding how children experience the struggle of being black in America is essential to improving how schools serve them. Taking on liberals and conservatives alike, Theresa Perry argues that all kinds of contemporary school settings systematically undermine achievement for black students. Claude Steele offers psychological evidence and research on the issue of stereotyping, and Asa Hilliard describes actual schools where African-American students achieve at high levels.
