We all took the SAT’s or possibly the ACT exam as a possible entrance exam to get accepted into high school right? The College Board was the main site to access information on test scores, helpful resources, etc. Well College Board has pinpointed a few issues that are facing today’s society.
To me, America seems like the land of the home and the brave an more importantly, the free. Education is such a huge fundamental and necessity in today’s economy. Today’s economy is filled with a cornucopia of different types of people completely trying to finish their education. One of hose types of people searching for the light are colored (primarily African- American male students)
Today, young men of color face a challenge that lends itself much more towards apathy than activism. Many young men of color are not pushed to their limits by rigorous coursework in high school. Many find themselves adrift at large universities without organized support systems. And some are forced to choose between personal obligations and academic responsibilities.ere is an education crisis facing young men of color. It’s not on the front page of the newspaper. People aren’t organizing on Facebook or Twitter. But it’s out there, and if we fail to address this crisis together, the education level of the entire American workforce will decline for the first time in our history.
