HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS FACTSHEET:

Black youth experience disproportionately negative outcomes in the education system, including higher rates of disciplinary action and higher dropout rates than their peers. One of the ways that anti-Black racism limits young people’s success is through the enactment and reproduction of harmful stereotypes. This factsheet summarizes five common stereotypes that shape the educational journeys of Black boys and young men.

This factsheet was developed from Students ‘at risk’: Stereotypes and the schooling of Black boys (2012) by Carl E. James in Urban Education.
