The Pipeline for African American Teachers (PFAAT), a program created by the National Alliance of Black School Educators (NABSE) and NRCCUA® has reached a significant milestone. This school year marks the fourth year of the program and will see participation grow to over a quarter of a million future African American educators.

Working with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Schools of Education around the country, NABSE and NRCCUA are helping to pave the way for bright, young students to pursue a career in educating America’s youth.

To date, the PFAAT participants include:

  • Over a quarter of a million students who report a desire to teach
  • Over 4,000 teachers
  • Dozens of HBCU Schools of Education
  • Thousands of colleges that have connected with these students through NRCCUA

“For the first time in NABSE’s history we have historical data on the aspirations of African American students, thanks to the partnership between The National Alliance of Black School Educators and NRCCUA. This information is extremely useful not only to colleges and universities but also advocates of our future workforce,” said Quentin Lawson, Executive Director of NABSE.

Students who participate in the pipeline receive information and resources from NABSE and NRCCUA, as well as from participating colleges and universities. The program is seeking additional funding to develop mentoring and financial support programs to improve access and achievement for participating students.
