In this incisive and practical book, H. Richard Milner IV provides educators with a crucial understanding of how to teach students of color who live in poverty. Milner looks carefully at the circumstances of these students' lives and describes how those circumstances profoundly affect their experiences within schools and classrooms. In a series of detailed chapters, Milner proposes effective practices–at the district and school levels, and in individual classrooms–for school leaders and teachers who are committed to creating the best educational opportunities for these students.

Building on established literature, new research, and a number of revelatory case studies, Milner casts essential light on the experiences of students and their families living in poverty, while pointing to educational strategies that are shaped with these students' unique circumstances in mind. Milner's astute and nuanced account will fundamentally change how school leaders and teachers think about race and poverty–and how they can best serve these students in their schools and classrooms.
