In Closing the Racial Academic Achievement Gap, Matthew Lynch presents theories, research, and suggested practices that can be used to instruct, discipline and motivate African American Children. This book is intended for educators (pre and in-service), administrators, parents, etc., who are charged with the duty of cultivating the minds of African American children.
With the arrival of the No Child Left Behind act, the so-called "Racial Achievement Gap" has attracted more concern and controversy than ever before. According to this timely analysis, the myth of the racial achievement gap has nothing to do with genetics'and everything to do with a host of embarrassing yet reversible social and pedagogical failures, including low teacher expectations, unrealistic timetables for learning goals, irrelevant curricula, ineffective teaching methods, careless administrators, poor parental involvement, negative peer groups, and self-esteem issues. For every problem raised, the book offers a level-headed solution, culminating in a plan for closing the supposed racial achievement gap for good.
Mr. Lynch also points out that teachers and administrators will no longer be allowed to let children of color fall through the cracks without facing serious repercussions. Therefore, teachers, parents, and administrators need to be increasingly aware of the latest research in multicultural education in order to help African American children realize their full potential, an arduous task for children of any race, and this book seeks to assist them in the realization of this goal. Closing the Racial Academic Achievement Gap, is a must have for teachers, administrators, parents, etc.
