This volume considers African-American education in the 21st centurythrough the lens of the Chicago School Tradition, at the University ofChicago. The Chicago School Tradition, among other emphases, stressed the optimistic view that all children who do not have serious physical or emotional impairments can do well in school, if provided access to effective teachers, sufficient resources andadequate opportunities to learn. On the occasion of Professor Edgar G. Epps' retirement from the University of Chicago, as Marshall Field IV Professor of Urban Education, this volume includes contributions from several generations of scholars influenced by his work to celebrate his career and contributions to educational research, policy and practice. More broadly, the volume adopts a holistic approach to examine the persistent challenges of deteriorating urban schools and poor educational outcomes for African Americanstudents. The volume seeeks to demonstrate how solutions may flow fromeducational research, theory, policy and practices conducted in the Chicago School Tradition
