“Every child deserves a black teacher.”
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 National Equity Project is incubating the BTP; we will serve as its 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.
