Title:Yes we can: The Schott 50-state report on public education and black males
Organization:Schott Foundation for Public Education
Short Description:Simply stated, Yes We Can is a clear indication that the face and fate of Black males largely depends on the systemic opportunities provided in your state or community. Does your community provide opportunities to become a physician or to be pushed out? Opportunities to be locked up or opportunities to learn? Opportunities to have a state or locally sponsored mentor or a state or locally sponsored parole officer?
Annotation:Research shows that, from one generation to the next, equitable access to high-performing public educational systems can break down the barriers to success and change the future trajectory of historically disadvantaged students. Providing all students a fair and substantive opportunity to learn is critical for our goals of systemic education reform, transformative innovation, consistent progress, increased participation in our democratic society and global leadership in a knowledge-based economy. We cannot, as a nation, achieve those goals while Black male students continue to be concentrated in schools and classrooms where there are few opportunities for them to excel. Simply stated, Yes We Can is a clear indication that the face and fate of Black males largely depends on the systemic opportunities provided in your state or community. Does your community provide opportunities to become a physician or to be pushed out? Opportunities to be locked up or opportunities to learn? Opportunities to have a state or locally sponsored mentor or a state or locally sponsored parole officer?
