  • (1888PressRelease) July 07, 2011 - The New Jersey Minority Educational Development organization will be hosting the workshop - "Addressing the Minorities Community's issues in Public Education" at the Save Our Schools March and National Call for Action Conference on July 29th in Washington, DC. However, many of the nation's prestigious groups will be missing in action; because they refuse to answer the tough questions.

    Albert Mitchell II, the workshop organizers said, "We've invited most of the nations recognize minority leadership organizations to talk about what they're doing to support the minority communities' development. I guess they got nothing! You have to understand; we're a grassroots organization and work closely in these communities and actually see what's not happening. These major groups are no longer grassroots. They've seemed to have lost their direction or determination. What do they stand for is the question I get from minority communities all the time? What do they actually do for us? Who do they really represent?"

    Since the Civil Rights Movement in the 60's, national statistics show the minority community has a serious leadership gap. For all the advancement made towards education, housing, and employment opportunities, the minority community has taken two steps back in poverty (over 1/3 of minority children under 18 are living in poverty); education (1/2 of minority high school students graduate on time); and whole family development (72% of African American children live in single-parent households). Though several of these national organizations are well funded, they have shown little to no leadership traits in honesty, forward-looking, competency, inspiring, or Intelligent in their oath to serve and protect their communities. And America deserves an answer, why.

    This conference workshop will wrestle with these questions and cover what can be done to fix both the academic and social achievement and attainment gaps in the minority community, with, or without these groups' support?

    The workshop still holds opening for national speakers interested in taking part.
    The final lists of speakers will be announced on July 18th. For more information contact your local minority group, school or contact the conference organizers, Save Our Schools March and National Call for Action, for more information.
