California Association of Black Educators Declares ‘State of Emergency’ Over De-Education of Black Boys in America

The California Association of Black Educators held their 2nd Annual CABSE Institute focusing on a national crisis surrounding the de-education of Black Boys July 10 – 13 in Napa, CA.

CABSE was founded by Compton School Board Trustee Micah Ali who has made it his mission to highlight the inequity in educating Black boys.

“We are having a phenomenal time with educators flying in from all over the country; half of the conference is represented by California with the other half from the rest of these contiguous United States as we come together to talk about a topic that is very much important throughout urban America and that is what do we do respect to the crisis of young Black boys,” said Ali.  “As we dissect the de-education of young Black males in our education systems, we have an opportunity to not just look at it from the university and collegiate lens but then we have an opportunity to lean into the practitioner space and look at various forms of delivery which will yield best practices as well as results.”

Ali led the charge to drop standardized testing from college admission requirements in Cal State schools.

“What a blessing to be surrounded by educators with a common theme and a mission which is to educate and not incarcerate our young Black boys,” said Ali.
