History and Purpose

The National Coalition On Educational Equity Initiative Report (Sept.2019)

More than 60 years after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to repeal school segregation in Brown v. Board of Education, our public pre K-12 schools remain alarmingly segregated and decidedly un-equal. Black and Brown children are clustered at underserved institutions and equity in educational outcomes remains out-of-reach for too many promising students. Many organizations have been working, both at the state and national level, to address the crisis in public education and the civil rights issues at its core, yet a space for these organizations to meet and articulate a national equity agenda was missing. 

The California Association of African American Superintendents and Administrators (CAAASA), NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, National Black Caucus of State Legislators, EdTrust, EdTrust West, National Council on Educating Black Children, Learning Policy Institute, NAACP Washington DC Branch, Alliance for Excellent Education, Children’s Defense Fund, California Teachers Association and other prominent National and State organizations are working to increase a dialogue and an ongoing collective planning with respect to a national strategy for achieving equity for African American, Latinx and other underserved students. The initiative would bring together educational and political leadership from the local, state, and national level to be engaged in the process of developing an effective and ongoing campaign for progress that engages communities of color across the country. 


The first meeting was held September 14th, 2018 during the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Conference. At this meeting stakeholders agreed that this effort must utilize effective research data and its findings to better understand the current crisis in public education. By collaborating with educational research leaders, we will be able to identify strategies and approaches to implement and recommend solutions to key educational issues. There was unanimous agreement to develop and support a National Coalition On Educational Equity. The group agreed to hold future meetings in November 2018 and March 2019, that resulted in the development of a framework that serves as a guide to move this important work forward.
 

The next meeting on the National Coalition On Educational Equity Initiative was held on September 13th, 2019 at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Conference. The discussion included several topics including The National Coalition Design and Model for an Educational Equity Institute supporting teachers and administrators. This working group model will provide a link between theory and practice enabling findings from the field to be relayed to this audience. Identifying funding and resource options was also discussed to make the Educational Equity Institute model free of cost. 

As we move forward ongoing meetings and discussions are needed to nurture the collaboration between researchers, legislators and practitioners. We will continue to reach out to like minded organizations representing education, legislative, civil rights, business, health and community partners in order to expand our efforts and strengthen the National Coalition On Educational Equity Initiative for African American, Latinx and other students of color.
