The Challenge…And the Opportunity to Get It Right

Penny Ciaburri has authored this feature article for New York State ASCD, revealing the important data and findings from the investigation of ten highly successful schools in New York State, exceeding the graduation rate for men of color!

The Issue:

As schools across New York State are striving to raise the academic performance and career prospects for all students, the graduation rates for young men of color (YMOC) over the past three years have been below 65 percent, compared to 80 percent for all students. A recent study (2019) conducted by PLC Associates, Inc. has documented key findings from schools who are consistently exceeding the graduation rate for young men of color and achieving significant, continued progress.
