Baltimore, MD - June 5, 2023 - The Maryland branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has expressed concern about the current state of public education for African American students, calling it an "intolerable" situation, reports FOX45. The group is organizing a conference on June 15 and 16 to discuss improvement strategies with school leaders and education experts. The conference comes after the NAACP claims that despite their attempts to work with educational agencies, issues such as lagging academic achievement, inadequate school discipline, and inappropriate treatment of special education students have persisted. The NAACP emphasizes that if substantial progress is not made after this conference, further actions will need to be considered.
