Am I My Brother’s Keeper? offers powerful insights into the challenges of implementing large-scale educational change. The book, chronicling the Expanded Success Initiative (ESI), a four-year study focused on improving the educational outcomes of fifteen thousand Black and Latinx males in New York City public high schools, covers what worked, what didn’t, and what we can learn from the experience.

Praise

In this important new book, Adriana Villavicencio presents a detailed analysis of an educational initiative designed to improve academic outcomes for young men of color in New York. Through careful examination of the work carried out at the schools where these interventions took place, she shows us how progress was achieved and how obstacles were addressed. Given how many schools across America are grappling with similar challenges, this book will be an eye-opener and potentially a guide on how to improve academic and developmental outcomes for young men of color elsewhere. — Pedro A. Noguera, dean, Rossier School of Education, University of Southern California
