DC BRANCH COMMITTEES
Women in NAACP (WIN)
The Education Committee works to ensure all students have access to an equal and high-quality public education by promoting school resource equity, increasing teacher quality, promoting parent engagement, and enhancing early childhood literacy initiatives. We improve the effectiveness, accountability and accessibility of the DC public school system. We work to reduce undue placement of minority youth in special education programs. We promote affirmative action and funding equity in higher education. We lobby to maintain and expand financial aid and PELL grants for higher education. Overall, the NAACP strives to eliminate education related racial and ethnic disparities.
