Kudos to Spike for highlighting the importance of education and the need for more black male educators. My hat is off to all of you who are making a difference in the lives of our male youth through your excellent example.
Spike Lee Pushes for More Black Male Educators
*Spike Lee and Education Secretary Arne Duncan came together Monday, calling for more Black male educators.
Lee, who is a Morehouse man, also recognized two of the most influential Black men in his life: two professors who mentored him through school.
It’s going to be a big campaign and there are at least 8,500 unfilled teaching jobs. There is financial aid and incentives out there for those ready to make the transition.
