EDUCATORS! Attending #CBCFALC15? Join the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans in partnership with NEA, AFTunion and the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation for an Education Summit and Teacher Development Day on September 16, 2015.
Nearly 60 years since the Brown v Board of Education decisions, African American students continue to lack equal access to a high quality education and still lag far behind their white peers in reading and math proficiency, high school rates, and college completion.
That’s why President Obama created the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans. The Initiative is a cross-agency effort aimed at identifying evidence-based practices that improve student achievement, and developing a national network that shares these best practices.
