Product Description:

Approximately 45% of young black children in the United States (under the age of six) live in poverty. It is well documented that education and economic security are inextricably linked and that early learning and early reading are undisputed contributors to a successful education. This book presents both the challenges and opportunities that exist for addressing the critical needs of black children who have been historically underserved in the U.S. education system. This book explores the language cognitive social-emotional and health development of black children from birth to age 8. The chapters approach this in three ways; first they tackle why it is problematic to only characterize Black children's accomplishment in terms of 'academic achievement.' Second they discuss the importance of the home-school environment connection. Lastly they discuss the changes that need to be in teacher preparation in order to ensure that the workforce can practice racial equity in the classroom. These issues are woven together by a call to close the education opportunity gap via 'equity adjustments' that can target educational and health disparities facing the black community.
