"Breaking Barriers- Plotting the Path to Academic $uccess for $chool Age African American Males" - Ivory A. Toldson, PhD.


" Plot a path to academic success for black males rather than cast a spotlight on their failures." Elsie L. Scott, PhD. - President/CEO, Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc.

A Howard University student (Eugene Puryear) sent me this study which proves to be an interesting resource especially for all of us working in an urban school system as well as those interested in the plight of African-American males and the minority achievement gap. This study was conducted by Howard University professor, Ivory A. Toldson, PhD. It explores factors that statistically improve educational outcomes for African-American males. Posted By: Candi.
