Aiming Higher Together: Strategizing Better Educational Outcomes for Boys and Young Men of Color

Addresses ways of understanding and unraveling a tangled web of home, school, peer-group, and societal factors that place boys and young men of color (BYMOC) from every socioeconomic level at risk for under-performance in school and life. Some ways to support them include altering home, school, peer-group, and societal routines that serve BYMOC less effectively than their peers; and making BYMOC a priority at least on par with any other group. The paper draws upon a large body of research and presents new findings.
