CINCINNATI – The National Board of Directors of the NAACP, a grassroots organization, has listened and is yet listening to the concerns of our members, parents, teachers, and supporters of public education across the country. In support of today’s newly adopted policy regarding public education, Chairman Roslyn M. Brock has convened a special taskforce to make recommendations and lay the foundation for a national stakeholder convening to ensure the following:

  1. Charter schools are subject to the same transparency and accountability standards as public schools;
  2. Public funds are not diverted to charter schools at the expense of the public school system;
  3. Charter schools cease expelling students that public schools have a duty to educate; and,
  4. Charter schools cease to perpetuate de facto segregation of the highest performing children from those whose aspirations may be high but whose talents are not yet as obvious.
  5. Consistency with existing NAACP policy on public education.

This taskforce will be chaired by Alice Huffman and include Hazel Dukes, Michael Curry, Gloria Sweet-Love, Derrick Johnson, Scot Esdaile, Da’Quan Love, Robin Williams, Peter Rose, Adora Obi Nweze, James Gallman and Philip Murphy.

This convening will bring together diverse perspectives to gain further knowledge, engage in future debate, and take action. The committee is charged with the responsibility of bringing forward practical recommendations that respond to the urgency of this resolution and the inequities undermining public education.
