RICHMOND, Va. - Alarming research reveals that more than half of African-American men, 53%, drop out of school. Those who do stay in school are lagging when behind when it comes to graduation rates, literacy, and college preparedness. Dr. Lawrence Bolar has worked as a teacher, school counselor, and school administrator over the last two decades, and he stopped by to talk about his new book - The Non-Negotiable: Educating African-American Male Students K-12.
