Urban Prep (all black male school) graduating seniors have 100% college acceptance rate, 3rd yr straight
If our young black males are given proper guidance and a great educational program they can exceed any negative statistics that have been created mostly through the structure of their environment. In the attached article, it is great that Urban Prep out of Chicago is able to surpass stereotypical expectations for our black males. This is a great success story but the sad part about this article is that Urban Prep only helps a snippet of the black males that are in the Chicago community. I truly wish our public educational system could restructure themselves appropriately to support the masses. Please read the attached Chicago Times article on the success of Urban Prep for reaching a 100% College Acceptance 3 years in a row. I personally would like to say thank you to Urban Prep for being a great model that others can learn from.
