The Multicultural Education Alliance was formed to partner with students, parents, teachers, educational institutions, and communities to improve educational opportunities and student achievement.
The Multicultural Education Alliance seeks to:
- Promote open dialogue and collaborative efforts between parents, administrators, educators, students, lawmakers, and community leaders to ensure quality education for minority students;
- Provide information to the public on issues related to education;
- Provide access to tools and resources needed to ensure real gains and success for all students; and
- Develop strong, informed communities that will provide the backbone and support structure for a skilled workforce.
As an active outreach not-for-profit organization, the alliance encourages partnerships with businesses to create programs that will prepare our children to become a world-class workforce.
