BLSA Conference Panel: African American Male Achievement
February 20, 2013 12:45pm - 2:00pm
African American males fare more poorly than their peers by most school-related measures, from academic achievement to truancy to high school graduation rates. This panel explores the causes and long-term ramifications of these outcomes, and discusses the efforts to bolster African American male achievement in public schools. Panelists include Chris Chatmon (Executive Director, Oakland Unified School District Office of African American Male Achievement), Nolan Highbaugh (General Counsel, KIPP Public Charter Schools), and Tim King (Founder and CEO of Urban Prep Academies, Chicago). Professor Arnetha Ball of the Stanford Graduate School of Education will moderate.
