Shares a Gifted Black Student's Story:
Public schools stuck on age appropriate class placement
subjected him to endless intellectual neglect and emotional abuse. They bored him into justifiable inattention,
then suggested he had an ADHD disability and needed
Special Education. His story might seem unbelievable, but everything is documented in the book.
With homeschool, he started college at 14.
After taking a break from school and after Beyond Mis-Education was published, he earned a Bachelor of Science degree
in Computer Science, graduating with high honors,
Magna Cum Laude.
This book is meant to encourage parents
to fight to keep their children, gifted or not, out of
an unjustified Special Education placement
and out of the school to prison pipeline.
Discusses the following:
Did you know there is no medical test for ADHD! Do we have to give our children toxic drugs for a diagnosis based on someone's subjective opinion? Find answers in Beyond Mis-Education.
"Age-Appropriate" Class Placement
Age appropriate classes move much too slowly for highly and profoundly gifted students. How do you defend your gifted child against false behavior labels and learning disability labels when your child is just bored to death? See how one mother refused to give up in Beyond Mis-Education.
Teacher Bias and Special Education
Is implicit bias in teachers really implicit, or is it conscious and deliberate? How does implicit bias hurt Black students? It is definitely prevalent and it's steering too many Black children into Special Ed instead of providing a fair and appropriate education that allows them to soar like the intellectual eagles they might be if they're not set up by their schools to fail. What are your parental rights and options for your child's education? Beyond Mis-Education exposes teacher/school bias in full effect starting in kindergarten/1st grade!
Do you ever wonder, "Why does my child hate school when I know he loves to learn?" Does your gifted child hate school because of ostracism or boredom? Does your Black child hate school because of teacher bias? (Kids can tell.) Is your child struggling with both black skin and giftedness working against him? Beyond Mis-Education discusses advocating through the "proper channels" from teachers all the way to the U.S. Department of Education.
KEEPING IT REAL
The plight of Black male children in America's public schools has not diminished over time; the methods used to destroy them have merely been given new labels and procedures. Too often public schools minimize Black children's education and set them up for a future of unemployment, poverty, crime, and prison. Mom...Dad...if you want to stand between your child and that fate, Beyond Mis-Education can help.
As for the highy and profoundly gifted, public schools think these children should be happy getting easy A's while learning nothing new. They'll say this bored and disinterested gifted child is underachieving, when in fact he's already achieved much more than the school requires at grade level, but they hold him back by refusing to let him advance - especially if he's Black.
These two groups of students are the most underserved and educationally suppressed students in public schools. They need parents to stand up for them. By the way, we do not have a stronger advocate for Black children's education than Dr. Umar Johnson. His YouTube videos and books are eye-opening and empowering.
The following track, "Sabotage", speaks about the unfortunate extremes in educational disparities and mis-education that many Black children are faced with, but disparities and mis-education are perpetrated on Black children in "good" schools too...

Your book is badly needed by parents and the public in general who don't realize that public schools can and do mistreat and miseducate children for their own convenience and personal biases.
