Campaign to highlight the Best Academic Practice Public School Districts for Black Students in Ohio
Jimma McWilson, Co-Director of The Campaign for African American Achievement has teamed up with Mrs. Tiffany Edwards of the Ohio Collective and Tom Roberts, President of the Ohio NAACP State Conference of Units to run a Campaign to showcase the Best Academic Practice Public School Districts for Black Students in the State of Ohio.
They have identified over 100 school Districts where African American students have mastered Ohio’s standardized test in reading. A Campaign website will be launched during Black History Month to bring attention to this Campaign for Best Academic Practice Public Districts where the system is working, and African American students are dispelling myths about them not being able to perform at high levels on standardized testing.
In collaboration with the Ohio Black Media Collective, a state-wide zoom press conference will take place during Black History Month to kick off the Campaign.
