Black boys show ‘genius every single day but schools suck the life out of them’ says leading Black education expert

Article here. Excerpt:

'The panel shared powerful insights about the challenges Black boys and their parents and caregivers face in trying to better Black children’s educational outcomes. Howard, who researches issues tied to race, culture, access and educational opportunity for minoritized student populations, said during the panel Black boys have been among the most “scrutinized, analyzed and criticized subjects in research for centuries.” Black boys are “adultified” and are often presumed to be bigger, older and more aggressive than they are, he said.

Black boys make up 8% of preschoolers but one third of all “babies” who are suspended from preschool, said Howard, who is the author of several best-selling books, including "Why Race & Culture Matters in Schools" and "All Students Must Thrive."'
