A Message From Our President

Dear NABSE Family!

There are only a few days left before we welcome in the new year! If you are like me, this is the time where I am trying to balance closing out 2023, catching up on projects and a growing list of to-dos while also planning for 2024. Somewhere in there, I try to squeeze in rest and have a little fun. So please pardon my interruption as I thank you for your membership and support of the National Alliance of Black School Educators.



This paper provides an in-depth examination of the challenges that educators, and particularly Black educators and learners, have faced in recent times. The 2022-23 academic year was particularly tumultuous, marked by cultural wars, safety concerns, legislative changes, and a rising exodus of educators. At a time when our community is under attack from multiple fronts, this document sheds light on the path forward.
