Someone emailed me about an initiative that I will be discussing more about in the future. What are the factors that contribute to young black males dropping out of school in Baltimore City? Does anyone have any personal insight/light to shed on the issue? I have ideas, since I teach a diverse population of developmental college reading students, but I am curious to hear others’ input.
Where do problems lie? Family structure? Disconnect between curriculum/educators/school system and student? Negative influences in the community? Something else?
