A Portrait of Black Students in Los Angeles

A Portrait of Black Students in Los Angeles
February 27, 2013

An in-depth study of black students in Los Angeles schools projects that, if current trends continue, only 1 in 20 African-American kindergartners will go on to graduate from high school and complete a degree at a four-year California university. The study was conducted by the Education Trust-West. Among its findings:

  • 1 in 5 African-American middle school and high school students are proficient in Algebra  I.
  • 63 percent of black students graduate from high school in four years.
  • 20 percent of black ninth-graders graduate in four years, having completed the courses required for admission to one of the state's public universities.
