The NAACP works to ensure that all disadvantaged students and students of color are on the path to college or a successful career by ensuring access to great teaching, equitable resources, and a challenging curriculum. We are dedicated to eliminating the severe racial inequities that continue to plague our education system. Our ultimate goal is that every student of color receives a quality public education that prepares him or her to be a contributing member of a democracy.

 

To achieve these goals, the Education Committee of the national board, in concert with education chairs and leaders from across the Association, have settled upon a four-prong strategy to improve educational achievement for disadvantaged students:

 

  • Increasing Resource Equity: Target funds to neediest kids
  • Ensuring College & Career Readiness: A path to success after graduation for all students
  • Improving Teaching: Growing our own great teachers now in underserved communities
  • Improving Discipline: Eliminate zero tolerance; keep kids in school* All applied to turnaround schools
