Dr. Steve Perry understands why some parents are panicked about what’s going on in their kids’ classrooms, and how other parents, whose kids supposedly attend the “good” schools, still fear that their children are falling behind. As a former principal of one of the best performing schools in America – sending 100% of its mostly minority graduating students to four-year colleges – Perry delights in proving “the system” wrong.
In this solution-oriented manifesto, Perry covers the full range of issues holding back today’s students. He shows parents and principals how to find great teachers (and get rid of the bad ones), how to make readers out of kids who hate to read, how to make the school curriculum thrilling rather than sleep-inducing, how to conduct an all-important education “home audit,” how-to “e-organize” if school boards and administrators aren’t getting the message, how to build a “school of the future,” and much more.
The era of third-rate education is over. Push has come to shove!
Dr. Steve Perry shares the meaning behind "Man Up!", in this hard-hitting, introspective look into what the Black community must do to save itself. Finally, a voice speaks to the complex relationship between personal and community responsibility.
Perry effectively calls to task organizations such as the NAACP and the Black church as well as talking heads like Michael Eric Dyson and Cornell West for their role in the retardation of the Black community. Ultimately Man Up! is about the simple solutions offered in each chapter.
