Low high school graduation rates are those of minorities (Black and Latino Males)
It has been observed that the extremely low graduation rates are those of minorities. The public still remains unaware of all the problems facing these students and the issues that are going on which require immediate attention. Not surprisingly New York has a low graduation rate, especially among Black and Hispanic students. This is not only true for New York; this is a nationwide problem. In addition it would be powerful to conduct a qualitative research on an urban school to discover what are some of its initiatives to empower minority youth. This analysis will help illuminate, create and promote programs that support our youth, while at the same time curbing the rate of Blacks and Hispanics that are dropping out of school and ending up in jail. I will be testing my theory/hypothesis through a case study of high school potential dropouts, determining why they are close to dropping out and looking at ways to prevent it. A focus of this analysis could be on academic intervention and how we support our struggling African American and Latino males. Please see the exam question below.
