Long DescriptionStatistics show that black males are disproportionately getting in trouble and being suspended from the nation's school systems. Based on three years of participant observation research at an elementary school, Bad Boys offers a richly textured account of daily interactions between teachers and students to understand this serious problem. Ann Arnett Ferguson demonstrates how a group of eleven- and twelve-year-old males are identified by school personnel as "bound for jail" and how the youth construct a sense of self under such adverse circumstances. The author focuses on the perspective and voices of pre-adolescent African American boys. How does it feel to be labeled "unsalvageable" by your teacher? How does one endure school when the educators predict one's future as "a jail cell with your name on it?" Through interviews and participation with these youth in classrooms, playgrounds, movie theaters, and video arcades, the author explores what "getting into trouble" means for the boys themselves. She argues that rather than simply internalizing these labels, the boys look critically at schooling as they dispute and evaluate the meaning and motivation behind the labels that have been attached to them. Supplementing the perspectives of the boys with interviews with teachers, principals, truant officers, and relatives of the students, the author constructs a disturbing picture of how educators' beliefs in a "natural difference" of black children and the "criminal inclination" of black males shapes decisions that disproportionately single out black males as being "at risk" for failure and punishment. Bad Boys is a powerful challenge to prevailing views on the problem of black males in our schools today. It will be of interest to educators, parents, and youth, and to all professionals and students in the fields of African-American studies, childhood studies, gender studies, juvenile studies, social work, and sociology, as well as anyone who is concerned about the way our schools are shaping the next generation of African American boys. Anne Arnett Ferguson is Assistant Professor of Afro-American Studies and Women's Studies, Smith College.

The Basics

You will need to send the file along with some other infomation in the form of a POST to our web server. You do not need to log-in or keep track of cookies. You will need to pass your keycode with every file you try to upload.

It is important that you check the results of every upload to make sure things are going correctly. Normally, if things go right you will get back an HTTP response code of 200 and the word "Success!" as the only content. If things go wrong, the HTTP response will be 400 or some value other han 200 depending on the problem. You can examine the content that is sent back for more details about the error.

When you send a POST request to http://eandata.com/upload_image.php with the the following required fields.

As long as the product exists in our system and there is not already an image associated with the product, the file should upload and be resized. All images are stored in PENDING mode until they are approved by a human. Users may be able to access the pending images but they will get a warning before the image is displayed to them.
