Event description

Description

EdFest is the convergence point of our mission-aligned work and is a platform to highlight the incredible work being done by and for Black Male Educators. Today, 2% of teachers nationwide are Black men. In Philadelphia, this number is only marginally better: about 4% of all teachers are Black men in a district with a student body that is 50% Black and 27% Black male.

We know students benefit from working with Black teachers who deeply understand who they are and are invested in their educational progress. This years theme, Education For The Culture, reaffirms the reality that teachers have always been the original influencers. In order to advance the recruitment, development and retention of Black male educators in schools, community-focused education must be the primary driver of change.

JOIN BMEC FROM OCTOBER 18TH-20TH AS WE REIGNITE OUR COLLECTIVE IMPACT AND REDEFINE WHAT EDUCATION MEANS FOR THE CULTURE.
