The Black-White Achievement Gap: Why Closing It Is the Greatest Civil Rights Issue of Our Time
by Rod Paige, former U.S. Secretary of Education, and Elaine Witty, former Dean of Education at Norfolk State University
This bold book provides a wake-up call—and explicit challenge—to black leaders and communities nationwide. It traces the history of the achievement gap, examines popular explanations for it, and offers strong suggestions for closing it. This, the authors forcefully argue, would do more to advance racial equality and social justice in America than any other civil rights strategy available today.
