Good news if you want to have any hope about Baltimore's future. Baltimore Sun:
After a push to get dropouts back in the classroom and to provide students with a greater choice of schools, Baltimore has seen marked improvements in both the graduation and dropout rates for black males.

In 2007, for every diploma the city handed out to a black male student, another had dropped out. In 2010, the city handed out two diplomas for every one who dropped out.[...]
The decrease in the number of black boys who left school has been the most significant. Between 2007 and 2010, the rate declined from 11.9 percent a year to 4.9percent a year.
