P.E.A.C.E Development Initiative
What are the NPA Canada Education Initiatives?
NPA Canada primarily delivers programs and solutions that shall assist individuals, families in the African Canadian and Canadian community.
The Education Committee shall assess, create and deliver community targeted educational programs and projects that shall focus on three levels of Educational Initiatives or activities that shall interrelate, operate, overlap and be expected to be implemented at different levels into our Canadian School systems.
They can be defined as follows:
- Targeted academic initiatives are put in place to address a specific academic need (e.g. reading, ELA, math, science or social studies)
- Cross curricular initiatives are put in place to improve teaching and learning across the whole school (e.g. teaching strategies for improving critical thinking skills, cross-curricular writing programs, or professional development programs, aimed at improving instructional quality.
- School climate or culture initiatives are broader initiatives that go beyond academic goals. They may include behavioral or social/emotional programs and initiatives designed to improve academic equity, family involvement, staff retention, or student engagement.
The Education Committee shall identify, develop and deliver important educational policies and programs regarding true African, African Canadian and Canadian history that shall date beyond 15th Century modern colonialism.
The Education Committee shall identify, assess, create, develop and initiate various education programs and projects that shall deliver important education information, regarding the true, factual African, African Canadian, African American, African Caribbean and Canadian history that concerns people of African descent and heritage. The Education Committee shall strive to unveil the true and factual Canadian history that dates far beyond the 17th Century colonial arrival of the British, French and Europeans that arrived on the shores of Nova Scotia after the First Nations People and the Second Nations People, i.e. the early African Explorers, who built the settlement of Africville, Nova Scotia in the early 160s or earlier that is now called the City of Halifax, Nova Scotia.
The Committee shall request that the true African and African Canadian historic facts, educational information and materials be implemented into the Canadian Education System and its curriculum so the aforementioned can promote positive historic information and images about Africans and people of African descent and heritage. The Education Committee and the leading African Canadian and Canadian organizations shall encourage the Canadian Education system to make positive adjustments and effective changes to the current education system, curriculum and Canadian history books.
