Research shows when Black students have Black teachers who reflect their experiences and worldviews, they perform better in school. But most go through 13 years of public education without one.
As a result, Black students continue to fall short of their academic potential.
We built the Center to address this national educational crisis by increasing the number of Black teachers in public district and charter schools and promoting anti-discriminatory, culturally-responsive educational practices.
All so Black students can reap the full benefits of a quality public education.
