`This is a wonderful book. It functions as an important contribution as to how teachers and schools can help black and minority ethnic pupils to raise their attainment and fulfil their potential.. ''Aiming High'' is not only for minority ethnic pupils but also for all educators. Raising attainment is not our only aim, what is important is to help every pupil to become the best they can be. This is the important message the authors of this book are trying to deliver and I totally agree with this' - Amazon Review. What can schools do to raise the academic attainment of every pupil?
