“Every child deserves a Black teacher.”
We are excited to announce another new partnership – with the Black Teacher Project!
The Black Teacher Project (BTP) recruits, develops, and sustains Black teachers for schools in the United States. Their goal is to create an effective teaching force that reflects the diversity of Black people in this country. To achieve this goal, the BTP:
- Develops specific recruitment strategies for future Black teachers;
- Develops supports for Black teachers to sustain themselves personally and professionally;
- Conducts research on Black teacher health and sustainability.
The Black Teacher Project was founded by Micia Mosely – an enormous intellect, super-connector, leader, ally, comedian and former staff member! By incubating the BTP, NEP will serve as their fiscal agent as they work to secure their initial start-up revenue. We are also providing office and meeting space for BTP’s West coast operations.
