State lawmakers in California must do more to improve recruitment, retention and graduation rates among black college students, according to a new report by the advocacy and research group Campaign for College Opportunity. The report, showing that black students have the lowest college graduation rate among all other ethnic groups in the state, recommended the creation of a statewide plan to address the problem. "Over 30 states have a very specific plan for improving college-going success, and we do not," said Michelle Siqueiros, the group's executive director. "That is unacceptable."
