This is the second of a series of videos about steps taken in schools in the United Kingdom that have shown promise in turning things around for its black boys.

Black Boys in School (pt. 2) [7:08]

The Copland School has targeted efforts to involve the parents of its black boys by…

…holding one-to-one meetings with parents of under-performing boys;

…encouraging parents to become more involved in school life

…texting parents with good news about their sons

…providing parenting strategies (e.g., helping sons who are struggling with homework rather than just telling them to do it)
