Quality Education for Minorities (QEM) Network
From the homepage: "QEM is a non-profit organization based in
Washington, D.C. dedicated to improving the education of African Americans,
Alaska Natives, American Indians, Mexican Americans and Puerto Ricans."
The QEM Network seeks to improve the education of minorities through
three components of the organization: Community Outreach and Leadership
Development; Mathematics, Science, and Engineering; and Public Policy,
Legislation, and Communications. The QEM Network homepage is straightforward
and informative, with links to descriptions of each of the three components,
as well as to various QEM projects and reports.
Linked from the "Pathways to School Improvement" site,
this page contains concise yet detailed descriptions of various innovative
schools, including the Paul Robeson African Centered Academy.
Urban Learner Resource Library
Created by the Middle Cities Education Association of Michigan, this
site offers a list of materials "...that pertain to teaching
and learning within the context of promoting success among urban learners."
While the library is for the use of MCEA district members only, anyone
can use this list as an informational resource when seeking materials
related to urban education.
