Report Recommends Educational Policy Adjustments to Aid Minority Males

In an effort to improve the educational outcomes for boys and young men of color, a group of well-known education professors released a report yesterday, outlining a series of state and federal policy recommendations aimed at addressing the issue.
The report, “Advancing the Success of Boys and Men of Color in Education: Recommendation for Policymakers,” is authored by a group of male scholars who run research centers at their respective institutions that focus on researching the educational experiences of boys and men of color.
The joint report, which includes 15 policy recommendations, calls for “increasing the utilization of data, partnerships, training and evaluation” while suggesting that Pre-K through 12 schools and postsecondary institutions develop equity plans to improve the outcome disparities for boys and men of color.
