Colleges Seek Key to Success of Black Men in Classroom
Schmidt, Peter
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n7 pA1 Oct 2008
Throughout American education, black boys and men, on the whole, have struggled for years. They graduate from high school and attend and complete college at disproportionately low rates. The overall college performance of black men is so poor that some college officials and advocates for black students are reluctant to even talk about the problem, for fear that doing so will further stigmatize black men and make things even worse. Now a cadre of researchers is pushing colleges to focus more on why some students are able to succeed. Others are pushing institutions to more carefully measure the impact of programs intended to help black males and to embrace those that look promising.
