Worries About Black and Latino Boys in Philly
From the report:
The report noted that the four-year graduation rate for African American males is 45 percent, and for Latino males is 43 percent. That "is staggering," Irizarry said. It drew heavily on data compiled by Project U-Turn, the city's major anti-dropout initiative, and worked with the Philadelphia Youth Network to organize groups of students and disengaged youth for focus groups.
