Title: Hear My Voice: Strengthening the College Pipeline for Young Men of Color in California

Source: The Education Trust – West

A new report by The Education Trust – West, the California-based office of The Education Trust, examines the barriers to educational opportunities for young men of color in California. The authors define this population as African American, Latino, Native American, Pacific Islander, Hmong or Laotian.

The report incorporates interviews with male students of color, their parents, educators and school administrators with research to provide a picture of their experiences in the education pipeline. It also includes examples of best practices that help support and increase the success of young men of color, as well as recommendations for K-12, college and university, and state leaders.

To read the full report, please see Ed Trust – West’s website.
