This research study aims to better understand the diversity of experiences and backgrounds among Black and Latino male students in Boston Public Schools (BPS) by examining enrollment and outcomes of Black and Latino males relative to their female peers and their male peers from other racial backgrounds. Specifically, the authors designed this study to provide a more nuanced analysis of engagement and performance of Black and Latino male students by disaggregating enrollment and outcome data not only by major racial/ethnic groups, but also by geographical region of origin and by different racial groups within regions. A companion study will share case studies of BPS schools in which Black and Latino males perform well compared to BPS schools with similar demographics. Through this latter study, the authors aim to identify promising school and district practices and policies associated with increased engagement and improved outcomes for Black and Latino males. Two appendices include: (1) Data, Methods, and Limitations; and (2) Graphs for Data in Non-Exam Schools (SY2012). [This report was prepared by the Center for Collaborative Education and the Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University on behalf of the Boston Public Schools. This Phase I report is part of a larger study, "Analyzing Enrollment, Outcomes, and Excellent Schools for Black and Latino Male Students in the Boston Public Schools."]
