Dear Equity Partners,
The term “education equity” over the last few years has been often used
by many organizations focused on improving the conditions and
advancement of equity in our public schools. The recent pandemic
has put a spotlight on inequities within education and racial injustices
suffered by the African American community. However, as a country,
we still lack a centralized designated system to address educational inequities in the United States. The California Association of African American Superintendents and Administrators is pleased to formally announce “The National Coalition on Education Equity” bringing together like-minded organizations representing education, legislative, civil rights, business, health and community partners in order to expand, strengthen and coordinate efforts to achieve education equity for African American, Latinx and other underserved students of color.
This National Coalition on Education Equity (NCOEE) will have several meetings, both virtual and physical, throughout the year, however, we are action oriented and our plan is to do far more than just meet and share information. Our goal is to produce true results, closing the gap in education disparities and help improve outcomes for African American, Latinx, and other underserved students of color, through research, training, technical assistance, policy development and legislative remedies shared regionally, statewide and nationally.
