Recent Book


Dr. Robert L. Green and three associates—George White, Dr. Kevin Green and Dr. Bradley Carl—have produced a book that explores how high expectations, innovation and digital technology can reduce achievement gaps. (Scholastic Inc. 2014)

"Expect the Most – Provide the Best spells out what’s needed to help all students achieve academic success: high expectations, curricular innovations, and outstanding instruction."

—Dr. Bernice King

New Book

From revelations about the Civil Rights movement to current insights about education reform, Dr. Green’s autobiography is a compelling story about the fight for justice–past and present (Michigan State University Press, 2015).

"From life-threatening voting rights marches with Martin Luther King, Jr., to arduous campaigns that desegregated America’s schools, to his current role as scholar and champion for educational equity, Robert L. Green has been a fearless agent of change and an eyewitness to history."

—Ambassador Andrew J. Young
