Raising African American Males is comprised of strategies and interventions that can assist and improve African American males' achievement in all areas of academics as well as in their everyday lives. Theresa Harris and George Taylor provide pedagogical strategies that employ various instructional tools for teachers, parents, African American youth, and administrators. In addition, this book can be a guide to improve the educational outlook for African American males and to provide the necessary resources used for training of parents, teachers, and students. The "No Child Left Behind Act" of 2001 and the Maryland Redesign of Teacher Education provides for the belief in the efficacy of all students. Many social inadequacies and injustices have resulted in social problems including the lack of resources for African American males to succeed.
