New Study Released: Social & Education factors for Black Males

Make time to view this new study.   A Call For Change: the Social and Educational Factors Contributing to the Outcomes of Black Males in Urban Schools

At Schools And Families Engaged, we focus on the value of the family and the critical role they have in every child and student's life.

Chapter 2 pg 16  In 2008, Black children ages 18 and under were nearly three times more likely to live in
single-parent households than White children. Nearly two-thirds of all Black children lived in
single-parent households. (Figure 1.4)

This study corroborates recent data showing that 70% of black children are born in to a single parent household.  If it is proven that strong families increase a child's chances for success, how can communities increase the value of committed relationships?
