The Black Educators Initiative (BEI), a $25 million effort to recruit, support and retain effective, committed Black teachers in Baltimore, Dallas and Washington, DC.
This initiative has been designed to remove barriers inhibiting the employment and preservation of Black educators while also improving outcomes for the students they will teach. Our goal, through the Black Educators Initiative and through our teacher preparation model, is to bring more aspiring Black educators into the teaching profession with deep preparation and support to stay in the profession long-term. Programmatic supports will be designed with the understanding that Black educators face an added hurdle in this work.
We are happy to be rolling out this initiative in January 2020 to align with our current mission to improve educational and life outcomes of children in urban schools. Click on the individual links below to:
