Racial Graduation Gaps Only Part of the Story

Again, my good friends at Education Trust focus only on the racial graduation gaps. What gets left out are the gender graduation gaps. In Why Boys Fail I visit California State University at Fullerton where at the six-year mark 55 percent of the women have graduated but only 40 percent of the men. How can we work on racial graduation gaps if we're not candid about the gender gaps buried inside those race numbers?
