The Black Montessori Education Fund (BMEF) believes that education has the power to positively transform lives. Historically, within the African-American community, education was seen as a vehicle for liberation. The BMEF envisions an educational approach that places value on the racial, cultural, economic and spiritual background of all and seeks to support the wholistic development of each individual to their fullest potential.
