By kindergarten, 1 out of 4 African American boys in California is convinced he will fail in school

About 70% of California males under age 25 are of an ethnicity other than white. By fourth grade, about 60% of black and Latino children score below proficient on reading tests, and by eighth grade, about 1 in 4 are chronically absent. A report found that 1 in 6 black males between 15 and 25 were out of school, out of work or incarcerated.
