What are the goals of AAABSE?

  • Promote and facilitate the education of all students, especially those of African descent;
  • Establish a coalition of African American educators and others directly and indirectly involved in the educational process;
  • Create a forum for the exchange of ideas and strategies to improve opportunities for people of African descent;
  • Identify and develop African American professionals who will assume leadership positions in education;
  • Influence public policy concerning the education of African Americans.

We plan to achieve these goals through three primary areas of focus:

  • Professional Development Programs that strengthen the skills and awareness of teachers, principals, specialists, parents, and community members;
  • Information Sharing around innovative instructional and learning strategies that have proven success in motivating African American students and increasing academic performance in critical learning areas;
  • Policy Advocacy that ensures high standards and quality in our public and private educational systems.

Each year AAABSE strives to:

  • Provide scholarships for college bound African American students through a Scholarship Banquet;
  • Serve as mentors for African American students and educators;
  • Organize workshops/conferences that engage: students, parents, educators, and other community stakeholders;
  • Support African American teachers during the National Board Certification process;
  • Provide support to students in Africa.
