This CULTURAL ASSESSMENT
TOOLKIT and RESOURCE GUIDE was created specifically for CONCERNED PARENTS of AFRICAN AMERICAN and other CHILDREN of COLOR attending SCHOOLS in the USA.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE CULTURAL EDUCATION
OF YOUR CHILD TODAY
The SCHOOL CULTURAL ASSESSMENT MATRIX (a.k.a. S.C.A.M.) was developed by educators with over 20+ years of teaching in an African-Centered School System in Detroit Public Schools. It has been designed for use by parents nationwide.
The SCHOOL CULTURAL ASSESSMENT MATRIX provides parents a framework or guideline when considering where, and how their child will develop the fundamental skills with which to solve the issues of being an “African living in America.” It can also serve as a guide to supplement areas of content that their child is not receiving in school.
PARENTS FINALLY HAVE A WAY TO MEASURE EDUCATION QUALITY FOR THEMSELVES
We Will Win
"At this specific time in a very politically divided and dangerous America, it is increasing necessary for parents of African American children to be conscious of what they are being taught about themselves, by whom... and for what purpose."
A CULTURAL EDUCATION IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT FOR HEALTHY BLACK CHILDREN
We are looking to CROWD SOURCE the funding to develop a mobile App for the S.C.A.M. Toolkit. (So much easier than carrying around a papers and a score sheet, right?) Hope we can count on your help in the coming weeks!

Our logo is an adaptation of the West African Adinkra symbol:
HWE MU DUA
"the measuring stick"
It is a symbol of examination and quality control, and stresses the need to strive for the best quality, whether in production of goods or in human endeavors.
