The Educational Experience of Young Men of Color: Capturing the Student Voice
College Board Advocacy & Policy Center
The goal of this study was straightforward: Bring the experiences of minority male students to life in a way that makes their voice central to the conversation about transforming the education system to improve their college experience and completion rates. To capture the student's voice, the researchers conducted an interlocking set of research activities, including individual, group and peer-to-peer interviews (in person and remote); on-site observations; and self-documentation exercises. The key findings are grouped into three broad themes: (1) Pressures of life; (2) Paths to completion; and (3) Webs of support. This report concludes with a discussion of the implications of the students' experiences and avenues of opportunity. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
