The Trouble with Black Boys
American Educational Studies Association 2008 Critics Choice Award
"In this compelling series of essays, Noguera cites research and his own personal experience--as a minority, a father, and an educator--to explore the myriad ways that young black and Hispanic males are expected to run afoul of middle-class American norms and often do. . .. A thoughtful look at issues of race and educational equity." --Booklist
"I needed this wise and richly resourced book forty years ago. Noguera's work and words have never been more critically needed."?--Deborah W. Meier, senior scholar and adjunct professor, Steinhardt School of Education, New York University, and author, The Power of Their Ideas
"This book demonstrates, once again, that Pedro Noguera is one of the nation's most eloquent, authoritative, compassionate, and forceful voices that speaks for our most neglected children and youth."--James A. Banks, Kerry and Linda Killinger Professor of Diversity Studies, and director, Center for Multicultural Education, University of Washington, Seattle
"Pedro Noguera has provided here an accessible account of the role race plays in the continuing disenfranchisement of students of color. These essays challenge educators to look at what we can do in schools rather than focus on factors out of our control."?--Lisa Delpit, eminent scholar and executive director for the Center for Urban Education and Innovation, Florida International University
