    Improving Schools for African American Students: A Reader for Educational Leaders provides education leaders with access to critical ideas, research, and knowledge across a broad range of educational issues that affect the successful schooling of African American children and youth. The articles that make up this book discuss generic education issues such as policy reform, the importance of high-quality teaching, and the improvement of schools from the perspective of the academic achievement of African American students. They explore the need to identify and redress policies and practices that hinder African American student achievement. They discuss effective teacher training programs, both pre-service and in-service, that focus on the academic and the ethical, social, political, and cultural dimensions of teaching African American students. These articles explore educational programs that build on the strengths that African American students bring to school, as well as how to create these programs in a wide variety of school settings, ranging from schools that serve predominantly African American students to schools in which African American students are a small percentage of the total school population.

    Isn't an Afro-centric History Curriculum strategically vital in our communities in the UK, USA and the rest of the Diaspora in general, Africa and in the already industrialized South Africa in particular, or won’t their children's knowledge base continue to be as polluted as Ours [could YOU name 10 African monarchs I still struggle whereas I could name 30 European monarchs easily]?

    Wouldn't you agree that the TRUTH is that we peoples of African ethnicity in the UK, USA, the rest of the Diaspora and Africa are all frontline soldiers in a War that has NEVER EVER been openly declared then or now by THESE despicably cowardly Semetic/White PARASITES, just very very efficiently waged/they JUST DO IT?

    Nubia/Khemet battled and resisted the Semitic hordes for millennia but from the moment Alexander the Macedonian peasant overran Khemet we've been losing this WAR, with the situation becoming a rout when Augustus [Julius Caesar's nephew, heir and history's greatest VANDAL] deliberately destroyed Khemet's most spectacular Pyramid at Abu Rawash, which you've never heard of, have YOU?

    This so deliberate piece of cultural vandalism was done to DELETE DJEDEFRAH from history as this African Pharaoh is now acknowledged as the builder of the Sphinx which honours his father Khufu [who built the Great Pyramid at Giza]; and as exemplified by the murderous carnage in Darfur and the Congo TODAY and the way Zuma, Goodluck and the rest of the African puppets as opposed to leaders sat back and allowed Africa’s greatest arab benefactor EVER [Muamar Gaddafi and his regime in Libya to be exterminated by NATO], we're still in BIG trouble/losing this WAR, aren't WE?

    Wishing this WAR away hasn't worked for the African collective in the USA, the rest of the Diaspora and Africa for the last 500 years because Slavery and Colonialism didn't so much end as evolve into the current reality of White/European socio-economic domination in every area of human activity so why are WE expecting the chaos in our communities and countries to improve in the near future?

    Isn’t it a fact that the main reason we're still the "VICTIMS" as highlighted by the HOLOCAUST of the last 500 years due to the way we have not organized our communities and countries with intelligence and foresight comparable to the other ethnic clans, with most of our so inept leaders not even acknowledging that this WAR is on?

    What chance do we stand when our Boulé dominated socio-economic elite [they're 106 years old this year] in the USA are completely under the control of our enemies of over 500 years now?

    Wouldn't you concede that in a World dominated by intelligently led collectives any group not organized with comparable intelligence is a "Victim in Waiting" who wont have to wait long; and as highlighted by the GRIEF in Iraq and Afghanistan and Libya [with the Syrian civil war very efficiently breaking the country’s back with the aid of munitions supplied by the West] which will be extended soon to Iran; even when you do there is no guarantee you wont be BULLIED [especially if you're in possession and total control of massive mineral wealth]?

    Why haven't the USA and the West punished China 's annexation of Tibet in the 60's like they did Sadamm's of Kuwait or Gaddafi’s alleged onslaught on his own people? The answer is simple, isn’t it, they cannot bully an industrialized nuclear armed country with a 3 million man army that could be boosted by conscripts to 10 million with minimal effort?

    Even more bizarre is our acceptance and commitment to the current status quo, or are YOU truly unaware of the fact that ALL over the World including Africa Europeans still LEGALLY own allegedly; all the land and resources they acquired during the looting, pillaging, RAPE of this planet in general, of OUR continent in particular that Colonialism and Apartheid sanctioned as the norm as opposed to the longest list of unacknowledged unpunished Human Rights violations/CRIMES in human history?
    Isn’t anyone who genuinely believes they are not programmed
    graphically illustrating that their programming is COMPLETE?

    None of the chapters say anything about science and technology. The history of the last 500 years has been a record of what people with technology can do to people without technology and the people without technology can't do anything about it.

    Scholarship is about making people better at school.

    This is an example of school:
