—Ronald F. Ferguson, faculty director, Achievement Gap Initiative at Harvard University
“Overcoming the Achievement Gap Trap is a revolutionary must-read that challenges educators at all levels to not only view inequity in schools through a critical lens but take actions, boldly declaring that education as usual is no longer acceptable for any student.”
—Tonya C. Adair, principal instructional leader, Washington High School of Information Technology, Milwaukee Public Schools
“For most, closing the achievement gap is simplistically addressed by the singular mindset of increasing standardized test scores. Through this provocative text, Anthony Muhammad teaches us that to truly close the achievement gap requires liberation with complexity.”
—Sharroky Hollie, executive director, Center for Culturally Responsive Teaching and Learning
