The DU BOIS Awards
FOR THOSE BRINGING JUSTICE TO THE CLASSROOM.
Scholar, educator, activist, W.E.B. Du Bois recognized the equal importance of both the mindset and actions of educators, “Children learn more from what you are than what you teach.” Through his writings and practice, he demonstrated to all that education is integral to the development of society.
Help us in recognizing each year outstanding Black male educators across Greater Philadelphia's public schools—those whose revolutionary teachings emulate the life's work of W.E.B. Du Bois. This award is based on exemplary achievement in the classroom and commitment to social justice.
Three winners will be selected for 2017 and recognized at BMEC 7 on June 10.
- Must be African American, African descent
