(Examiner) — If Chicago minority graduation rates for African Americans can improve, why can’t the same be said for Latinos? Here is an interesting topic that was picked up over the weekend: In 2005, a study by the Chicago Urban League found that only 38 percent of African American males graduated from high school in the city of Chicago. In 2011, a study by the African American Libertarian Alliance finds that 43 percent of African American males graduate from high school. 56 percent of African American females graduate high school. In total, half of the African American population of students in Chicago graduate high school.
