The book Educating All God's Children by Nicole Baker Fulgham is a well-researched, well-organized book that will prove useful to both educators and the church in examining what they can do to empower students to do better in their classes and to be more confident about their own abilities. Fulgham graduated from the University of Michigan and later joined Teach For America where she taught fifth grade in Compton, California. She received her doctorate in education from UCLA with a focus on urban education policy and teacher preparation. Her varied experiences and education are what add to the quality and academic clarity of her book.
Having been in education (both public and private: both secular and Christian) for nearly 20 years now, I have to admit a certain amount of trepidation in approaching this book. Over the years, my professional learning community has been regaled with books on how to fix the ills that plague our education system. In Southern California particularly, I have been approached by professionals representing virtually every minority and special-interest group telling me how their approach will "level the playing field." Most of these solutions are self-serving and at best put a bandage on the problem offering many complaints and few genuine solutions.
Fulgham's book, while suffering from some of the same problems, is probably the most useful that I have read for several reasons. First, she takes the time to break down each of the issues into manageable sub-sections. These allow her to be specific about the larger problems that she is talking about. This has the benefit of addressing specific concerns that her audience might have.Read more ›
The author Nicole Baker Fulgham is an amazing woman and she tells personal stories of her time teaching in the inner-city of LA. Nicole shares why she believes Churches & Christians should partner with public schools to help bridge this gap. Maybe you've never considered the injustice that exists today in our education system or maybe you are well aware and are considering how you or your church can collaborate with schools and other non-profits to make a difference, then this is a great book for you. In fact, it may be the only book of its kind in that regard. I would also recommend connecting with Nicole's organization "The Expectations Project" which I have found to be a great resource to knowing how to get started in church-school partnerships.
