A Close Look at the Dropout Crisis: Examining Black and Latino Males in New York City

Written & Edited by Ben Meade, Frank Gaytan, Edward Fergus, and Pedro Noguera

This report focuses on Black and Latino males from the 2006-2007 high school cohort who dropped out. We closely examine who drops out and when, and their achievement levels in middle and high school. Our assumption is that by knowing more about who is likely to drop out, and at what point in their education they are at greatest risk, we can more effectively determine appropriate interventions and better work to reverse this alarming problem.
