About the book:

In this book Righting America’s Wrongs: A Best Practices Manual for Educating Black Males, Dr. Stanley Howard urges the nation to lower the decibel and change the conversation on school reform from the divisive and often unscientific chatter of charter versus neighborhood schools, merit pay, and educating children for a career in favor of conversations surrounding the question: “how do children learn?” He proposes that this simple question can lead educators, parents, teachers, administrators, community activists, and policymakers to advocate for ecologically-aligned schools and educational programs designed to stimulate children’s innate curiosity, imagination, creativity, resilience, and problem-solving potential.  It shifts our educational mindset from teaching children “what to think” to “how to think.”

Dr. Howard examines the research on Black male development and learning during their critical early years from birth through age eight. Based on research on what constitutes a “quality world class twenty-first century education,” he calls for the nation to invest in community-based think tanks that are connected to community schools to benefit all children, and particularly Black males. This book is a valuable contribution to the fields of early childhood education and mentoring Black youth.
