The National Alliance of Black School Educators
The National Alliance of Black School Educators (NABSE) is a non-profit organization that is devoted to furthering the academic success for the nation’s children, especially those children of African descent. The NABSE was founded in 1970. The NABSE is the nation’s largest network of African American educators program. The organization reaches out to over 5,000 educators including teachers, administrators, superintendents and also other corporate and institutional members. The NABSE is dedicated to improving both the educational experiences and accomplishments of African American youth through the development and use of instructional and motivational methods that increase levels of inspiration, attendance and overall achievement. The NABSE promotes programs that deal with professional development, information-sharing on strategies that will help to motivate African American youth and increase their academic performances, and policy advocacy.
The NABSE looks to promote and facilitate the education of all African American students. In order to complete this mission the NABSE has established a coalition of African American educators, administrators and other professionals that are both directly and indirectly involved in the educational system and process. They are also working to create a forum for the exchange of ideas and strategies to improve opportunities for African American educators and students. The NABSE has working programs in place to identify and develop African American professionals who will take on leadership positions in the educational system and influence public policy concerning the education of African Americans.
The National Alliance of Black School Educators looks to accomplish their mission by using professional development programs that will strengthen the skills of not only teachers but also principals, specialists, superintendents and school board members as a whole. The organization has also developed a system of information sharing that focuses on innovative instructional and learning strategies that have been successful in motivating and helping African American youth in increasing their academic performances. The NABSE has put in place a policy advocacy system to ensure that high standards and quality in our public and private education systems are insured.
Today, the NABSE continues to work to make policies that will help to ensure better educational experiences for African Americans.
