White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans

Over 62 years since the Brown v. Board of Education decisions, African American students continue to lack equal access to a high quality education and still lag behind their white peers in reading and math proficiency, high school rates, and college completion.



President Obama created the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans. The Initiative is a cross-agency effort aimed at identifying evidence-based practices that improve student achievement, and developing a national network that shares these best practices.

The Initiative support the President Obama’s desire to “restore the country to its role as the global leader in education, to strengthen the nation by improving educational outcomes for African Americans of all ages, and to help ensure that all African Americans receive an education that properly prepares them for college, productive careers, and satisfying lives.” For more information, please visit their website at http://sites.ed.gov/whieea/.
