Larry Davis is on a mission.  He's compelled to transform the education system to be more successful educating Black children.  He's tired of lackluster success of many school systems what fail to help Black children excel in their academic endeavors.

The challenges African American children face in the school system are thoroughly documented. We know how the educational system fails many African American students, and we know why. Despite this, little has been done to address and fix these issues. Thus, the problem persists.

It’s time to stop merely considering the problem and start actively working toward a solution-for the betterment of students, educators, and the nation. In his recent book, entitled "The Re-education of the African American Child," veteran educator Larry D. Davis proposes a systematic, step-by-step approach to transforming how we educate African American children.

Davis clearly shows that the reeducation of African American children is a group effort: educators, students, parents, school districts, and communities all need to take responsibility for educating children. He examines the programs and services required to support both educators and African American students and candidly discusses the challenges his proposals face.

We have had decades to effect change for African American children, and we have done nothing but talk about the problem and point the finger of blame. Isn’t it time we stopped talking about making a difference, rolled up our sleeves, and started working toward the solution? If the idea resonates with you, Davis’s new book offers a blueprint for change.

When asked for a synopsis of his approach to education Larry D. Davis replied "My teaching methods is about scripting critical moves:

  • Only make moves that going to impact students
  • Educational institutions were built to educate children not to employ adults
  • The needs of students out weigh the wants of adults
  • Exam if our teaching and daily practices are helping or harming children
  • What are the needs of our children and those needs and then take the students to where they need to be
  • What needs to be changed and when can we expect change
  • Some is not a number
  • Soon is not a time
these are essential elements of teaching African American children successfully."

We also asked Davis about the role of Black history in the education process for African American children.  He responded with this succinct but salient answer "I think we need to place African American history needs to be placed in our history books and take it's rightful place as American History."
