He’s right about the Schott report. It’s great research to have, but for them to pretend this is strictly a race issue -- comparing black boys to white boys -- sidesteps a huge question: if this is just about race, then why aren’t black females faring just as poorly? At hundreds of colleges black females have a better graduation rate than white males. This is about gender and race.
