Cincinnati schools black male initiative

CINCINNATI, Oh. — The Cincinnati Board of Education will launch an initiative to help African-American boys and other at-risk male students succeed.

CINCINNATI.COM REPORTS:

The project, which organizers hope to fund with grants and private support, will create Young Men’s Clubs at five high schools and five elementary schools to provide tutoring and positive mentoring for at-risk males.

In Cincinnati, the graduation rate for African-American boys in 2009 was just 74 percent, compared to 82.9 percent for all students.
