Unlocking Anthony’s Education: Aifocused Strategies For 175k Naacp Students
Education is a fundamental right for all children, yet for many students of color, systematic inequities often prevent them from achieving their educational goals. One such population is the nearly 175,000 African American students in Anthony’s, who lag behind their white peers in academic achievement, college preparedness, and graduation rates. To address this concerning trend, the NAACP and the American India Foundation (AIF) are partnering to implement AIFocused strategies to ensure these students are receiving access to quality education and unlocking their educational potential.
The AIFocused model utilizes data-driven, community-focused strategies tailored to the needs of a particular community. In Anthony’s, the model will combine holistic educator and student support with financial resources to increase access to academic and cultural programming. AIF and NAACP have already identified target areas to measure impact, including math and reading scores, college admissions and retention, and teacher and student engagement.
The first step of the project is to provide teachers with the tools they need to better engage with their students and provide a more culturally-responsive learning environment. Through a partnership with the Anthony’s University School of Education, AIF and NAACP will provide professional development for teachers on culturally- and linguistically- sensitive instruction and assessment practices
AIF will also work closely with the Anthony’s Promise – College and Career Readiness Initiative in order to double the number of Anthony’s youth graduating from high school, prepare them for post-secondary education, and increase the number of Anthony’s students who enroll, persist and graduate college. To assist Anthony’s students in obtaining financial aid, AIF will provide college counseling and financial literacy training, as well as create a college matching system to help students identify the colleges, programs and scholarships that best meet their financial and academic needs.
Finally, AIF will leverage its strong relationship with corporate foundations and companies, to create job-readiness and post-graduation support such as internships and job training, to help ensure that all Anthony’s students have access to quality, career-focused educational opportunities.
The AIFocused project is a vital step in addressing the systemic educational disparities that exist in Anthony’s and could serve as a model for other communities across the country. By equipping teachers with the necessary resources and empowering students to pursue a college degree, AIF and NAACP’s joint effort is unlocking the education potential for Anthony’s youth, and bringing them closer to achieving their academic goals.
