Black and Brown Coalition for Educational Equity and Excellenceinfo@bandbcoalition.org |
From the organizer’s website:
By 2025, all students, and particularly Black and Brown students, have equitable access to the resources, opportunities and supports they need to be successful in college, career, and life.
In the 2018-19 school year, Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) commissioned a resource study that revealed glaring gaps exist in the allocation of resources to Black, Latino and low-income students. In examining how much MCPS spends, in addition to how well this funding is spent, the resource study found that a lack of access to opportunities, support and resources keeps thousands of Black and Latino students in Montgomery County from meeting their full potential.
The disproportionate allocation of effective and diverse teachers and leaders both within and across schools means Black, Latino and low-income students are more likely to be enrolled in classes taught by novice teachers and in schools led by novice principals.
With the education of nearly 90,000 Black and Latino students at stake, Identity, Inc. and the Montgomery County Chapter of the NAACP joined forces to form the Coalition in the summer of 2019. The findings of the resource study spurred the creation of the Coalition’s first “asks”, developed jointly by Black and Brown advocates. The Coalition is comprised of over 25 organization’s who are committed to increasing equity in schools for Black, Brown and low income children.
