Black Boys Report: THE SCHOTT FOUNDATION

schott50statereport-1.jpg

‘The American education system is systematically failing Black males,’ according to the ‘Black Boys Report’ released by the Schott Foundation this past July. According to the report, only 50% of all black males are graduating from high school. With these figures, it seems that President Obama’s bold goal of becoming the world’s forerunner in education again by 2020 will not be attainable if the success rates in education continue to vary by race, gender, and zip code.
The report also highlighted the states that are currently failing black males miserably. They are listed as the States of Emergency. They are: Wyoming, Georgia, Illinois, Nevada, New York, Florida, Louisiana, South Carolina, Wisconsin and Michigan.
The states that are reporting major issues are concentrated in a few large concentrated metropolitan areas and aren’t necessarily indicative of the entire state. These cities are New York, Detroit, and Chicago.
On the other hand, the report does well to stress the fact that some states are indeed performing very well. The best example of this is New Jersey whose implementation of the ‘Abbot’ program has fared extremely well in closing the education gap.
While there is much work to be done moving forward, the Black Boys Report listed a comprehensive list of tangible solutions. It is important to remember that closing the educational gap is not a philosophical issues in need of a great deal of academia to understand and improve. The solutions to the problem are quite tangible and, with funding and initiative, will be effective if there’s commitment behind them.
The solutions include: (page 7)
Equitable Resources
Universal pre-school education
Programs dedicated to the social and health services in the communities they serve
New and rehabilitated facilities
State accountability
Please read the report, tagged below, and join Beyond the Bricks in the effort to foster a national movement to see these changes implemented to help our black children succeed. Let’s work to get these kids off the ‘school-to-prison pipeline’ and to college! Share the report with friends and family members and continue the discussion on Facebook, Twitter, at the dinner table, and at the water cooler.
