The National Alliance of Black School Educators (NABSE) is the nation’s premiere non-profit organization devoted to furthering the academic success for the nation’s children – particularly children of African descent. NABSE boasts an outreach to a distinguished group of preeminent educators including teachers, administrators, superintendents as well as corporate and institutional members. Founded in 1970, 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.
To that end, NABSE seeks to:
- Promote and facilitate the education of all students, with a particular focus on African American students;
- Establish a coalition of African American educators, administrators and other professionals directly and indirectly involved in the educational process;
- Create a forum for the exchange of ideas and strategies to improve opportunities for African American educators and students;
- Identify and develop African American professionals who will assume leadership positions in education and influence public policy concerning the education of African Americans.
NABSE’s compelling mission and purposes are achieved through three primary areas of focus:
- Professional Development Programs that strengthen the skills of teachers, principals, specialists, superintendents and school board members;
- Information Sharing around innovative instructional and learning strategies that have proven successful in motivating African American youth and increasing academic performance in critical learning areas; and
- Policy Advocacy to ensure high standards and quality in our public and private education systems
- Research programs of the Charles D. Moody, Sr. Institute produce projects that identify educational practices that demonstrate excellence in the school performance of African American studies.
