Aiming Higher Together: Strategizing Better Educational Outcomes for Boys and Young Men of Color

May 10, 2016

Abstract

Within every age group, there are males of color who achieve excellence. But boys and young men of color remain overrepresented among those who do not excel academically and face home, school, peer-group, and societal disadvantages relative to their white peers. This paper proposes strategies to achieve a person-environment fit that can change dynamics and lead to better educational outcomes for these students.
