In Courageous Conversations About Race: A Field Guide for Achieving Equity in Schools, authors Glenn Eric Singleton and Curtis Linton explore the statistical gap in achievement between white students and students of color and recommend ways school administrators, teachers, and other educators addresses this issue head on.

As the title implies, educators are encouraged to have frank, "courageous" conversations about race. For such conversations to be useful, they must take place within a safe, honest, respectful environment. The authors offer a detailed, thoughtful model for conducting conversations about race and poverty that lead to a deeper understanding of why achievement gaps exists and what teachers and schools can do to close that gap.  

Courageous Conversations is divided into three sections:

  • Passion – the issue of race as a phenomenon impacting learning
  • Practice – how to begin and continue the dialogue about race
  • Leadership -- what is necessary to close the achievement gap

This book is an excellent professional development resource designed to assist in facilitating dialogue about the racial issues that negatively impact student achievement.  At the end of each chapter, readers will find activities that can be used to facilitate staff discussions about the impact of race in the classroom and how to begin the process of improving learning for all students.
