Equitable Education: Denied
The Supreme Court has struck down affirmative action - a direct attack on diversity and opportunity in higher education. Quality, accessible education should not be manipulated or weaponized to further racist agendas. We must spring to action to protect fair educational opportunities for ALL, even in the absence of affirmative action.
The Florida State Board of Education's updated standards on how Black history will be taught are an affront to the Black community. Our children deserve nothing less than truth, justice, and the equity our ancestors shed blood, sweat, and tears for.- Derrick Johnson, President and CEO, NAACP
The NAACP thanks the staff at Brookings Metro for their support with background research to support our initiatives.
