From the Back Cover Focusing on pre-K-12 schools, higher education, and social influences, this book examines the following question: What systemic set of strategies is necessary to improve the conditions for African Americans throughout the educational pipeline? "Comprehensive in its approach to representing the educational experiences of African Americans over the life course, this book fills an important gap in the literature." -- James Earl Davis, coeditor of African American Males in School and Society: Practices and Policies for Effective Education "Jerlando F. L. Jackson accomplishes the difficult task of helping us understand the complexities involved in getting the African American student from school to the workplace. While seemingly simple, the multiplicity of factors which emerge and impact the educational process must be understood by researchers, policy makers, and educators as we all become partners in the process to improve the conditions and experiences of African Americans in education. Jackson provides us with manageable ways to learn and begin to understand the systemic implications of this process in his book." -- Barbara M. Pulliam, Superintendent, Clayton County Schools, Jonesboro, Georgia "This volume provides an important window to the pipeline problem. It also offers some viable solutions. If we do the work it challenges us to do, then we hope that the next generation will have no need for a book that calls for strengthening the pipeline." -- from the Foreword by Gloria Ladson-Billings "This book is a must read for all policy agents responsible for making decisions in reference to African Americans in education and will surely emerge as the seminal piece on this topic." -- Congresswoman Gwendolynne S. Moore, 4th District of Wisconsin "The pipeline metaphor has been dominant in discussions of the pre-K-graduate school articulation. Too long have these discussions focused on descriptions of the problem. This book represents a serious effort to bring tools to bear on this significant national concern. The tools redirect the literature from mere descriptive analysis to real solutions of one of the country's most serious human resource development challenges." -- William F. Tate, Washington University in St. Louis "Strengthening the African American Educational Pipeline is a must read because the contributors present a vivid analysis of the situation that African Americans are facing in the educational realm." -- from the Preface by William B.
