From the Publisher

In this inspiring and thought-provoking follow-up to his 2009 best-seller Motivating Black Males to Achieve in School and in Life, Baruti Kafele makes the case that the achievement gap between white and minority students can be closed only if educators first transform students’ negative attitudes toward learning. According to Kafele, educators can achieve remarkable results by focusing on five key areas:
* The teacher’s attitude toward students
* The teacher’s relationship with students
* The teacher’s compassion for students
* The learning environment
* The cultural relevance of instruction

Replete with practical strategies and illustrative anecdotes drawn from the author’s 20-plus years as a teacher and principal in inner-city schools, Closing the Attitude Gap offers a wealth of lessons and valuable insights that educators at all levels can use to fire up their students' passion to learn.
