dc.description.abstract I designed and facilitated a workshop in South Bend, Indiana, titled "His Education is your Business" which helps parents of African American males' ages three to five years old direct their sons' education. Studies have shown a widening achievement gap between African American males and males of other ethnicities. The average high school dropout rate for African American males is approximately 4 7 percent nationally (Schott 2012 Foundation Report). This workshop aims to reduce the African American males' achievement gap by encouraging parents of young males three to five years old see the relevance of early parental involvement in their sons' educational journey. The goal of "His Education is your Business" is to utilize a business model to help parents strategically direct the course of their sons' education. The business model I am implementing will teach parents four business strategies: creating a business plan, identifying critical success factors, understanding the importance of long- term investments, and evaluating performance indicators in an attempt to assist them with facilitating their sons' success. en
