Summary:

"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 "attitude gap" that often affects underperforming students can only be closed if educators first help students develop the will to strive for excellence. 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, and the cultural relevance of instruction
