Eagles who soar: how Black learners find the path to success

Rhamie, Jasmine (2007) Eagles who soar: how Black learners find the path to success, Stoke on Trent, UK, Trentham Books, 140pp.

Record type: Book


In a school system in which most African Caribbeans have negative experiences of schooling, there are some who attain highly in school or achieve academic success later in life. This book is about the differences in the experiences of those who did well and those who did not. The statistics confirm a general picture in which African Caribbean pupils have disproportionately high exclusion rates and statements of special educational needs. But it is not always so, and it need not be. The voices of the young people presented here are powerful and revealing. Through their own accounts of their school experiences, we see how the influence of family, friends and the community can enable them to succeed against the odds.
Eagles who Soar shows through these stories how destructive patterns can be broken and how Black children can overcome the challenges they face. It will encourage and inspire the Black community and also the educationists to strive for greater success among African Caribbeans and is essential reading for anyone concerned with the education of Black children and young people.
