NAACP: EDUCATION INNOVATION
We advocate for equitable local, state, and federal policies that establish education standards, allocate resources, and set priorities for education and workforce systems.
Students need family and community engagement and resources that encourage physical and mental health for their overall well-being, which allows for stronger academic development. We work to expand access to high-quality learning experiences throughout the education continuum and accelerate community-driven approaches to build stable, enriching public education systems.
Racial justice in education
We need strategies and investments that build accountability to advance the success of children of color. Black children deserve to experience culturally relevant, student-centered learning — not extreme punishments or hallways staffed with police officers. We work to expand policies and interventions that equip families and communities to better support their kids’ needs in school.
