Obama Inititative

From The New York Times:

On June 21, President Obama announced that 60 of the nation’s largest school districts are joining his initiative to improve the educational futures of young African-American and Hispanic boys, beginning in preschool and extending through high school graduation. My Brother’s Keeper, which will also address the needs of Asian-American and Native American boys, was originally announced in February. My Brother’s Keeper is a five-year, $200 million initiative that will allow partner districts to expand quality preschool access, track data on minority boys to improve intervention strategies, increase the number of boys of color who take gifted, honors, or Advanced Placement courses, and increase graduation rates.
