Reducing the Black Male Dropout Rate

This guide outlines the ten most significant reasons for the high dropout rate among black male students and offers more than 30 solutions to address this national crisis. With nearly half of black males not graduating from high school, this exploration delves into the causes, including poor parental involvement, low teacher expectations, boredom, negative peer pressure, and lack of positive role models. The solutions proposed, such as smaller classes, single-gender classrooms, Afro-centric curricula, cooperative learning, motivational speakers, and higher expectations from teachers, aim to provide prevention strategies for administrators and teachers and empowerment principles for students.
