District Initiatives for Males of Color

  • In July 2014, 61 of the largest school districs in the country signed "A Pledge by America's Great City Schools" to improve the educational outcomes for boys and young men of color by implementing a set of evidence-based strategies that range from early childhood through graduation. Building upon the Pledge, the Council has worked alongside district leadership to develop implementation plans based on actionable steps and measurable goals to raise the standard for young boys and men of color. Each implementation plan is a reflection of the common issues and unique circumstances that affect boys and young men of color around the nation.
