National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity joins more than 280 groups working to train 100,000 excellent STEM teachers by 2021
NAPE has been recognized as one of the newest partners of 100Kin10. With the addition of more than 45 partners this year, 100Kin10 now boasts more than 280 committed partners.
100Kin10 unites the nation’s top academic institutions, nonprofits, foundations, companies and government agencies to train and retain 100,000 excellent STEM teachers to educate the next generation of innovators and problem solvers. NAPE helps to train and retain STEM teachers through its professional development programs and its annual event, the National Summit for Educational Equity (NSEE), which is being held April 11-14 in Alexandria, VA.
“NAPE is committed to impacting equity in education through partnerships like 100Kin10 that help our nation’s teachers,” said Mimi Lufkin, CEO of NAPE. “We are proud to be a part of such a great group to strategically apply our resources to help further our mission to build educators’ capacity to implement effective solutions for increasing student access, educational equity and workforce diversity. The NSEE ’16 is one of many ways we work with teachers to take them to the next level for their students.”
Mimi will be in New York City this week meeting with the new organizations that have been selected to become 100Kin10 partners this year. Organizations are accepted as 100Kin10 partners following a rigorous vetting process conducted by a team of partner reviewers and a national selection panel of experts in education and STEM. Applicants are considered for partnership based on their organizational strength and STEM and teaching expertise; clear, meaningful commitments toward the 100,000 STEM teacher goal; and dedication to building the 100Kin10 movement.
NAPE has committed to grow the reach of its professional development programs and providing educators with the strategies and tools needed to close the achievement and participation gap for under-represented students in STEM.
