Today, The New York Times and NewsOne (“For Black America”) are shocked — shocked — to find that Blacks and Hispanics still lag academically compared to Whites and Asians, after the College Board released a report entitled “The Educational Experience of Young Men of Color: A Review of Research, Pathways, and Progress” (.pdf version available […]
