(2015) | Disparities in educational access, opportunity, and achievement between Black and Latino males and their peers have been the focus of education reform initiatives for decades. The Annenberg Institute for School Reform’s research into the matter has two phases, each of which is summarized in a separate report.

  • The first phase of the report found that Black and Latino males had inequitable access to more rigorous programs in schools, contributing in part to significant opportunity and achievement gaps for this population.
  • Phase Two’s report offers detailed case studies that suggest a more intentional approach to supporting Black and Latino male students could significantly strengthen outcomes.
