The purpose of this study was to determine what factors influence African American males to leave high school without earning a diploma. Students were randomly selected into four categories: five ninth, five tenth, five eleventh, and five twelfth grade students. Each grade level student completed an in-depth survey containing objective questions relating to educational, social, and socioeconomic factors that may influence black male students to withdraw from high school. The result indicates no single educational, social, or socioeconomic factor that would influence these black male students' decision to withdraw from school before graduation. Research in this area should continue as there is much more information available regarding factors that influence black male students to leave high school without earning their diploma.
