National Black Church Initiative Comprehensive Educational Framework
Through the National Black Church Initiative's Comprehensive Educational Framework, the black
church acknowledges with the changing environment in methodological approaches, resources, and technology come
the need to embrace innovative and culturally-relevant education and research-focused models. Particularly, for the next 50 years, such demands require an inclusive approach to ensure the African American community implements a plan to surpass performance expectations.
The plan will offer standards for public and higher education purported by the church to ensure school age children and aspiring young adults have access to the quality education and opportunities. The National Black Church Initiative's Comprehensive Educational Framework is an expansion of the documented work already began through this initiative.
Thus, using policy and engagement-centered measures as informed by the included documented work, the National Black Church Initiative strategically will implement diverse efforts in the National Black Church Initiative's Comprehensive Education Framework to address and (re)dress issues affecting African American with regards to education at primary, secondary, and higher education levels.
Comprehensive Educational Framework - Policy and Engagement Strategies for Modus OperandiThe National Black Church Initiative has engaged in various programmatic activities prioritizing the importance of primary education for preparing children appropriately to be competitive in schools.
Some of those activities include collaborative efforts with Florida State University and the establishment of the Childhood Advocacy and Development Institute. Through these activities, the National Black Church Initiative is identifying best practices for establishing the foundational standards of the children and families in the congregations served.
