CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Some parents are calling on Mayor Rahm Emanuel to fire Chicago Public Schools CEO Jean-Claude Brizard.

The Black Star Project and African American parents say Chicago has become ground zero for the destruction of black students in American schools.

They said male graduation rates for African Americans in Chicago have dropped between 2008 and 2010.

CPS said graduation rates are up, and dropout rates are down for African American students between 2010 and 2011.

The district also said the achievement gap for ISAT scores has also narrowed.
