Why Race & Culture Matter in Schools : Closing the Achievement Gap in America's Classrooms
by Tyrone C. Howard

Overview -
While race and culture remain important variables in how young people experience schools, they are often misunderstood by educators and school personnel.

Important reading for anyone who is genuinely committed to promoting educational equity and excellence for all children, this accessible book outlines the changing racial, ethnic, and cultural demographics in U.S. schools and calls for educators to pay serious attention to how race and culture play out in school settings.
