Here's some statistics regarding High School graduation per centages from a study done by the Manhatten Institute for Policy Research.(http://www.manhattan-institute.org/html/cr_48.htm).

  • "Nationally, the graduation rate for white students was 78 percent, compared with 72 percent for Asian students, 55 percent for African-American students, and 53 percent for Hispanic students. "
  • Since black and white students have equal opportunity at public high school education, I find the graduation rates somewhat low.....Given there is equal opportunity at education, and education is not taken advantage of by 45%, I feel that there is little that needs to be appologized for regarding slavery.
