The Trouble With Black Boys: ...And Other Reflections on Race, Equity, and the Future of Public Education

"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. He argues that public schools…are the only institutions with the access and resources to turn around troubling social trends. He points to research comparing the disciplinary tactics of public schools and prisons, institutions that have far too much in common with so many male minority students dropping out of schools and landing in prison. A thoughtful look at issues of race and educational equity." — Booklist
