Recorded on February 19, 2013

What learning conditions, organizational structures, and school climate factors are necessary to nurture the positive development of African American male students?

How can we assist schools, parents, and teachers to help African American male students develop achievement identities?

This webinar covers:

  • Policies, conditions, and strategies that can help produce a nurturing school climate
  • Political constraints that may be experienced along the way
