Walk in Their Shoes

The College Board Advocacy & Policy Center has a sobering look at the educational experiences young men of color. It’s an intimate look at the experiences of minority students including the pressures and stress associated with being “different” in a variety of settings. These experiences obviously do not end once Latinos and other minorities enter the workforce.

Many of the stories resonate with me, especially losing interest in friends that chose a much different, and sometimes unfortunate, path in life.

A full report is here. Also, take time to listen to some of these stories. Extraordinary.
