The White House announced Monday that 60 urban school districts are joining “My Brother’s Keeper.”
“My Brother’s Keeper” is an initiative to help boys and young men of color graduate from school either career or college ready.
Rochester City School Superintendent Bolgen Vargas joined leaders from across the country who took part in a town hall meeting in Washington, D.C. Vargas says what Rochester is doing to boost achievement levels for all students focuses on meeting the needs of African American and Hispanic students, who make up 43 percent of the district's students.
