The Brown Boy Crisis takes educators, graduate students, scholars, and policymakers inside the minds of a group of learners who fail to overcome the racial barriers schools often have in place to stumble their academic success. Thought to be monolithic learners, African, Hispanic, and Native American males—the brown boys—have the highest dropout rates. They are the most disproportionately under-served students in our schools. Yet, they are the first to be suspended, disciplined, medicated, micromanaged, held back a grade level, and assigned to special education classes.

The school experiences of brown boys have metastasized into a national crisis. The Brown Boy Crisis describes the enormous diversity among these three groups of male learners. It explores the hidden agendas of school culture and misinformation that fuels their higher retention and dropout rates.
