On average 55% of black male students do not graduate from high school in the United States
The Schott Foundation for Public Education:
Nevada and Florida graduated less than a third of their Black male students on schedule, according to the State Report Card, which presents the most recent data (2003 - 2004) from the National Center of Education statistics. Eight other states -- Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New York, South Carolina, and Wisconsin -- graduated fewer with their peer group than the national average.
"Much of the problem is concentrated in a few large cities. New York City, Chicago, Detroit and Dade County fail to graduate between three-quarters and two-thirds of their African-American male students with their peers," writes Michael Holzman, author of the report.
