A chart with a story on single-gender schools serving black boys in the June 20, 2007, issue of Education Week contained an error. It should have said that while black males accounted for 8.7 percent of U.S. school enrollment in 2002, they constituted 23.8 percent of those who had received out-of-school suspension, 12.9 percent of those who had been classified as learning-disabled, 21.7 percent of those who were labeled emotionally disturbed, and 20.6 percent of those who were classified as mentally retarded.

A version of this article appeared in the July 18, 2007 edition of Education Week
