Did you know that African American young men only graduate High School on time (4 years) 48% of the time in the USA. In Chicago and New York City that rate drops to 34% and 26% respectively?
The bigger question is, How do you feel about this? And What do you think should be done about it?
After all young men and young women must be supported and promoted by our local communities, setting the example for our regional and national representatives. We must provide for them and assist them in developing the skill set that is going to allow for each of them to be competitive in a fast paced society where information and distractions are coming at you from all directions more than ever in history.
