Minority Males: Are they falling behind at school?

A report from College Board Advocacy and Policy Center shows a stark statistic.  African American and Latino males are falling behind other ethnic and racial groups and females in most educational attainment categories.  Fewer African American and Latino men are going to college and facing higher rates of unemployment or incarceration.  We look at the study a little further and ask leaders in the African American and Latinos communities what they are doing to change the trends.
