A Look at Black and Latino Males High School Performance

The Open Society Foundation, the Study of Race and Equity in Education at the University of Pennsylvania and the New York City Department of Education recently released Succeeding in the City, a high school achievement study featuring 325 Black and Latino males from 40 public high schools in New York City. The report outlines disproportions in NYC’s minority male high school success rates and how and why Black and Latino males aren’t making it to college. — Dominique Zonyéé
