The Schott Foundation - 50 State Black Boys Report

The Schott Foundation - 50 State Black Boys Report

This is The Schott State Report on Black Males & Education. Generally it says that the public school system is sorely failing Black Males. They are dropping out of high school at alarming rates and as a result, are unable to engage institutions of higher learing. New Jersey is the only state to show Black males graduation rates at 65% or better. The gap between black males and white males is alarming and even show that there has been gross digression on the part of Black Males and education in the United States public school system.

What's the point?

The point is that there must be a smarter investment made in an effort to educate Black Males all around the country.

We will either pay on the front end, or we will pay on the back end when Black males are housed in prisons across the nation, and in every way, that will be a much higher cost!
