A Call for Change: The Social and Educational Factors Contributing to the Outcomes of Black Males in Urban Schools

Region IV Equity Center: WestEd

The purpose of this study is to bring much-needed attention to the comprehensive challenges of Black males in the United States. Black males continue to perform lower than their peers throughout the country on almost every indicator. And while much work over the years has gone into addressing the challenge of the Black–White achievement gap, there has been no concerted national effort focused on the education and social outcomes of Black males specifically.
