Public Education and Black Male Students: A State Report Card - The graduation rate for African American males in the United States was 41% in 2001-2002, compared with 70% for white students. This high rate of failure in educating African American males has many negative consequences at the individual and societal levels. The report compares graduation rates between white and black males by state, and by district for those districts with enrollments of at least 10,000 African American males. Detailed reports for 21 states can be found starting on page 17, comparing information such as 8th and 4th grade NAEP scores and inequities in discipline and special education.
