Too Important to Fail (Episode #201H)
KQED 9: Tue, Sep 13, 2011 -- 11:00 PM
Tavis Smiley examines one of the most disturbing aspects of the education crisis facing America today - the increased dropout rate among black teenage males. Low graduation rates combined with high rates of placement in special education classes and the disproportionate use of suspension and expulsion add up to a crisis point for young black males on the brink of adulthood. What will it mean for a generation of young black men and for this country if black teenagers are left to fend more or less for themselves and too often fail? This program investigates the root causes of this calamity, as well as what can be - and is being - done to reverse it.
