The Association of African American Educators (AAAE) was founded to promote equity in education within the ethnically diverse pupil population of San Diego County. African American educators, by the nature of their ethnicity, bring a unique perspective to the education of African American children. The unprecedented intensity of societal demands on the nation's schools emanates from diverse needs and sources.
Recognizing that education must serve the
interests of all community, the AAAE affirms its commitment to quality education for all children, specifically as it affects the opportunities of African American youth.
The primary objective of our volunteer association is to address the educational needs and conditions of African American students enrolled in K-12 schools and to provide training and professional development opportunities for teachers, school administrators, and other school staff. Our association has been existence since 1983.
