I made a commitment to share my research findings and recommendations with all parents and students in America.

According to the National Math and Science Initiative, America is ranked 25th under other countries in high school science and mathematics comprehension. Among this placement, African American students struggle especially.

Dr. Clarence Johnson makes the above claim in his new book 'Roll Call: 2012'. This long-term study proves that the concept of math mastery is directly related to the high-stakes learning improvement of this particular group.

'Roll Call: 2012' paints a picture of the obstacles students face. As a group, African Americans continuously receive less resources and support than other students. Especially damaging to the learning process is the complex embedment of technology in our daily lives. Parents, teachers and communities have a multitude of options to aid in the learning process. Dr. Johnson’s recognition of the obstacles will aid scores of future students.

“I made a commitment to share my research findings and recommendations with all parents and students in America,” Dr. Johnson says.

With information on how colleges, and the job market must respond to the reality of the situation, 'Roll Call: 2012' lays forth the bridgework to the wholesome learning environment that every student deserves.
