'This book represents an excellent analysis of the negative results that colour-blind policies bring and it can be seen as an opportunity to learn from successful policies and practices ... The book is of paramount importance for all those interested in education in general and for those who seek to understand the genesis and consequences, the how and the why of the huge underachievement and the exclusion of ethnic minorities, mostly black males.' - Intercultural Education
