The Texas Alliance of Black School Educators (TABSE), organized in December of 1986, is an affiliate of the National Alliance of Black School Educators (NABSE). TABSE is committed to improving the educational achievement of African-American students by increasing the participation and expansion of Texas affiliates. TABSE further believes in identifying and promoting those activities, which are designed to sensitize the public-at-large and educators, specifically, to the needs of African-American students in academic and non-academic areas of development.
The National Alliance of Black School Educators (NABSE) is the nation’s premier non-profit organization devoted to furthering the academic success for the nation’s children – particularly children of African descent. Now in its 38th year, NABSE boasts an outreach to more than 10,000 preeminent educators including paraprofessionals, teachers, administrators, board members, and superintendents, as well as, corporate and institutional members.

Our compelling missions and purposes are achieved through Professional Development Programs that strengthen performance, sharing research-based, innovative instructional and learning strategies, and policy advocacy to ensure high standards and quality in public and private education systems.
