“In order to increase the percentage of African American males in education, and to also close the achievement gap for students of color across the nation, we must develop the capacity of black male educators to achieve results that will yield outstanding student achievement data. It is our hope that NABME can partner with other organizations throughout the country to help propel this urgent initiative.”
