Boston schools study success rates of Latino, black male students


, , ,


Boston Public Schools are working to improve the performance of their black and Latino male students.
In June the school system received a $250,000 grant from the Barr Foundation and made a commitment of $260,000 to collect information on black and Latino male students and start an advisory committee.
The goal is to make these students more successful. The school system is partnering with the Annenberg Institute for School Reform at BrownUniversity on the project. The Annenberg Institute is a national policy-research and reform-support organization that promotes quality education for all children, especially in urban communities.
Warren Simmons, executive director of the Annenberg Institute, is an important ally for the school system in assessing the performance of black and Latino male students.
