Outlining the 10 most significant reasons behind the high drop-out rate amongst black male students, this guide provides more than 30 solutions towards addressing this national crisis. Revealing that currently close to one half of black males do not graduate from high school, this exploration pursues the causes behind this alarming statistic and looks at many angles of the issue, including poor parental involvement, low expectations from teachers, boredom, negative peer pressure, and lack of positive role models. The solutions presented—including smaller classes, single gender classrooms, relevant Afro-centric curriculums, cooperative learning, motivational speakers, and higher expectations from teachers—are designed to provide prevention strategies for administrators and teachers, as well as empowerment principles for students.

Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu is a nationally recognized educational consultant and the author of more than 30 books, including 100+ Educational Strategies to Teach Children, Black Students. Middle Class Teachers., Countering the Conspiracy to Destroy Black Boys, and Raising Black Boys. He lives in Chicago.
