Motivating Black Males to Achieve in School & in Life (Kafele)

There are a few useful tidbits in this 92-page book. What would it mean if we shifted from writing lesson plans to student plans? Why doesn’t every student have an individualized education plan (regardless of whether they have a diagnosis)? As for many of his ideas, it just depends on the school’s priorities.

I worry that Kafele might be a cult of personality kind of leader. I wish that he’d included some observations about how his ideas have (or have not) worked at other schools.

I’d love to hear him in person. Better yet, I’d love to spend time at his school.
