"Too Much Schooling with its educational focus, fits into the Afrocentric school of thought with its aim to develop subject-centered analysis and solutions for African children. This book is an attempt to illustrate and demonstrate some of the ways we can use our cultural base to educate children."
--Molefi K. Asante, Author of Africa World Press titles Afrocentricity; Kemet, Afrocentricity, and Knowledge; The Book of African Names; Thunder and Silence; African Culture.
"It is our responsibility as African-American parents, educators, and citizens to develop educational settings-- formal and informal --where cultural understandings (political, historical, literary, technological, financial, health, law, etc.) are not transmitted accidentally, but by design. Too Much Schooling, Too Little Education is an over-needed addition to the ongoing search for meaningful African-centered education. Dr. Shujaa has edited a collection that is not only a first in this field, he has also assembled in one volume some of the best thinkers and practitioners working today. This book is more than impressive, it is required reading."
-Haki R. Madhubuti, Publisher of Third World Press
