about

Hundreds of thousands of African Canadian children demand and deserve quality education that promotes success both within and outside of school. Recognizing that the education these young people receive will shape their lives as citizens, the contributors to this volume provide an important, timely analysis of the educational experiences of African Canadian children and youth. With contributions from leading and emerging scholars, The Education of African Canadian Children critically responds to and comments on the historical, cultural, institutional, and informational contexts and problems of the learning lives of these children. The authors offer a comprehensive history of African Canadians' encounters with the education system, the current challenges they are facing, and opportunities for more inclusive and democratic educational practices that will better serve this population. Advocating for cultural redemption and learning success for a population that is not being served well by Canadian public education systems, this book will benefit teachers, students, government program managers, policy makers, and educational researchers. The first multi-authored work of its kind, The Education of African Canadian Children opens new debates and possibilities for change for those concerned with education in their communities and their country.
Awad Ibrahim is professor of education at the University of Ottawa. Ali A. Abdi is professor of education at the University of British Columbia.

Editorial Reviews

"There are very few books as comprehensive as this collection that investigate the experiences of African Canadians in Canada's education system. Several of the authors are among the best scholars on the subjects of race, antiracism, and postcolonialism. In sum, an excellent work." Goli M. Rezai-Rashti, University of Western Ontario
