The Educational Status of African American Males in the 21st Century
Garibaldi, Antoine M.
Journal of Negro Education, v76 n3 p324-333 Sum 2007
This article assesses the educational attainment of African American males between the 1990s and early 2000s. Beginning with a summary of a 1987-88 study conducted by the author on African American males in the New Orleans Public Schools, national data are provided on the high school graduation rates of African American males and females, as well as trends in their enrollment and degree completion at the undergraduate, graduate and first professional levels. The data show a growing educational disparity between African American women and men in all higher education institutions, but also in public and private historically black colleges and universities. The author offers recommendations to improve the performance, enrollment and graduation rates of African American males in order to close the current college gender gap. (Contains 10 tables.)
