    One thought on “Black Students. Middle Class Teachers.”

    1. This book is so heavily tilted and baised It enfuriates my co workers and myself whenever we had to read and discuss the chapters.

    2. I found this book to be surprising, affirming and insightful There were so many elements of this book that confirmed thoughts and questions that I have had about Black education At the same time, the book has again confirmed that I, as a white educator, can make a difference in the education of a black student And sprinkled through the text were Bible versus that seemed to speak to us from over 2000 years ago Are we not paying attention Kunjufu focused his book around several major themes low ex [...]

    3. I ve spent a lot of time working in predominantly minority schools within the last year or so and I had noticed that most of the teachers are white This inspired me to pick up this book It is a huge topic for the context that I am in and effects me a lot as a white middle class person working with black youth.This book is not especially well written, but it is a quick read and has TONS of resources and ideas for improving student performance in predominantly black schools It is valuable for anyo [...]

    4. I good quick read A great introduction to the problems black students have in today s education system and a good resource for some ideas on what to do about it Lots of references for further reading It could have given some real life plans, like sample lesson plans and discipline ideas I d recommend it to anyone who, like me, doesn t know much about what it s like to be black in America.

    5. A necessary perspective on urban education Some great concrete ideas sprinkled throughout I like the idea of calling students by the titles associated with their dream careers but the text should be tightened up and the data better presented some graphs difficult to read, missing axis labels and discussed Is the 4 % increase in test scores under African American tutelage statistically significant Are divorce and fatherlessness the same.

    6. This would be a lot better book if it didn t itself up as white female middle class teachers vs poor black boys Very specific, just a wee bit prejudiced Still, some good bits in here for example, the disproportionate number of black boys who are sent to special ed or expelled for behavior or test scores that are ignored in white boys.

    7. I borrowed this book for a colleague, and we ll have a good discussion about it Kunjufu has a passion for his topic Chapter 5, A Relevant Black Curriculum has some cross curricular ideas that made me re examine my approaches to Sophocles, Shakespeare, and many of the other dead white guys we push in the traditional ELA curriculum.

    8. The title of this book really offended me At first, I felt like the author was saying middle class teachers most of whom are white were not the first choice for black students However, there was a lot of good information in this book This author is also quite prolific.

    9. This book would have been better if it had offered ideas to implement in the classroom I thought it mainly gave knowledge instead of application Quick and easy read.

    10. If you re teaching students different thatn you it is essential that you read this book to find insight on how some students act and what motivates them
