A Guide for African-American Parents: How to Help Your Child Prepare for College and Career
Education Trust
Until every school gives all students an education that prepares them for college and a career, African-American parents will have to fight for their children's future, class by class, teacher by teacher, and school by school. Your child deserves nothing less. This guide shows you: (1) Why your child needs to prepare for college and a career; (2) How to tell if your child's school has college-ready academic standards; (3) The special hurdles facing African-American students; and (4) How to be an effective advocate for your child.
