Promising Practices for African American and Hispanic Students



July 2012 | 112 pages | Corwin
`With a wonderful mix of theory and practice, this volume is for professionals and for lay people, indeed for anyone interested in the crucial questions related to educational leadership in the USA. The authors are to be congratulated, and the readers will be grateful for their efforts' - Barry Munitz, President and CEO, JP Getty Trust

This compelling guide demonstrates how high achievement can exist in the midst of high minority enrollment and high poverty. By drawing upon the best practices of 13 exemplary schools, the book highlights the specific means by which ethnically diverse-namely African American and Latino-students can attain educational success. These "Promising Practices" are presented in a user-friendly, well-organized format, with real examples interwoven throughout.
