Please join us for a provocative overview on how Los Angeles County is addressing the barriers to African-American student success.
Researchers from The Education Trust—West will share findings of their latest report, a first-of-its-kind assessment of the academic, socio-emotional and health outcomes of African-American youth in L.A. County. A quantitative analysis of data primarily from The Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC), the California Department of Education (CDE), as well as secondary research, predominantly from the California Healthy Kids Survey seeks to paint a comprehensive portrait of the experience of African-American youth in Los Angeles County schools.
Following the presentation, a panel of community leaders and stakeholders will also discuss the strategies necessary to transform the educational system to better serve African-American youth in the county.
