We believe that all students should have the opportunity to learn and achieve at high levels.
MAEC established the Center for Education Equity (CEE) under a grant from the US Department of Education to address problems caused by segregation and inequities. MAEC, a 501(c)(3), works to promote excellence and equity in education to achieve social justice. We partner with WestEd and the American Institutes for Research (AIR) on CEE to achieve the following goals:
- Improve and sustain the systemic capacity of public education systems to effectively cope with educational issues caused by desegregation and resegregation.
- Increase equitable educational opportunities for all students regardless of race, gender, religion, and national origin (English Learners).
CEE is one of four regional equity assistance centers funded by the US Department of Education under Title IV of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
