Students at any age, birth through adulthood, deserve opportunities—opportunities afforded by a high-quality school experience that prepares them for careers with family sustaining wages and opportunities for advancement in the global 21st century workforce. The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans and Ebony Magazine are proud to present, “The 2014 Summit on Educational Excellence for African Americans.”
