Keeping Black Boys Out of Special Education

This critical analysis examines the overrepresentation of African American males in special education, attributing the issue to race and gender biases. It raises questions about why more females are sent to special education in Europe and why America leads in the prescription of Ritalin to children. The analysis also explores possible relationships between sugar, Ritalin, and cocaine, as well as between special education and incarceration. The book offers over 100 strategies for teachers and parents to keep black boys in regular classrooms, including revising teacher expectations, increasing parental involvement, changing teaching styles to a hands-on approach, revising the curriculum, understanding the impact of mass media, and promoting healthy eating habits.
