The task force has already developed more than a dozen recommendations that are part of a pilot program in seven public school districts in Maryland. Suggestions include creating a black men mentorship program and staff training.

“What we have to do is go to those schools every day and see what they’re doing and put them in the spotlight.

Some members of the Maryland Board of Education shared similar concerns.

“My only concern is when I sent this to the superintendent saying this is what we’re doing, he came to us and said, ‘Yes, we want to do this in our district.’ Only a few superintendents said that.

At Tuesday’s summit, Jawanza Kunjufu, one of the nation’s top experts on black male education, said the shortage of black male teachers was compounding the problem.

“The real problem is that the future of black people is in the hands of white female teachers who didn’t go to college and had courses on black history, black culture and black men’s learning styles. said Kunjufu.

Educators said the state of Maryland cannot afford to overlook such problems.

“Until we understand how to teach black boys on a great scale, Maryland will not have a quality education,” said Choudhury.

Organizers said they plan to persuade more Maryland school districts to participate in a pilot program targeting black male students.
