The Path Forward: Improving Opportunities for African-American Students

U.S. Chamber of Commerce

[This report offers] a portrait of the performance of African-American students in the United States today. [...] Over the past 25 years, the performance of African-American students on key academic success indicators has improved, in some cases markedly. [...] In absolute terms, though, there is much more room for improvement. [...] By staying the course on accountability, promoting school choice, working with industry, and focusing on students in the greatest need, we can work to turn around these distressing numbers in ways that will significantly benefit African-American students who deserve a high-quality education experience that will prepare them for the path forward.
