The state of education for black boys is alarming. Black boys are more likely than any other group of children to be expelled or suspended from school. They are often the majority of students to be assigned to special education classes. While poverty and inadequate school systems bear some of the blame, the situation for black boys is far more complicated. Guest host Howard Manly is joined by Rosa Smith, president of the Cambridge-based Schott Foundation for Public Education.
