Description: There is very little research and writing done by urban educators to document effective practices in urban schools. In response, this book has been written by a long-time urban classroom teacher and coach to provide insight into effective program building and educational practices. The book rejects the up-by-your-bootstraps theory of success, offering in its place a set of concrete strategies to teachers and educational leaders who are committed to fundamentally rethinking the business-as-usual approach which continues to fail urban school children. This book is well-suited for classes working with educational leaders, classroom teachers, sports coaches, and educational researchers.
