Black Youth in South King County & South Seattle

Posted on December 20, 2017

A new Road Map Report, Start with Us, shows the need for systems to combat racial bias, promote positive school climates, racial identity development, and listen more closely to students. It also includes new data on several dimensions of college readiness and postsecondary success. During focus groups called Listening Sessions, local Black high schoolers shared what mattered most to them when it comes to their education:

  1. Teachers Who Can Identify with Students.
  2. An Environment That Values Autonomy and Emphasizes Learning. 
  3. Preparation for Life Beyond High School. 
  4. Culturally Relevant Lessons, Including on Pan-African History.
