The Black Political Review

A friend from Washington DC sent me an email regarding the Call Me MISTER (Mentors Instructing Students Toward Effective Role Models) program. It is a teacher recruiting initiative supported and funded at Clemson University in South Carolina. Their goal is to provide more teachers of quality to serve in some of the state’s lowest performing schools.

The Call Me MISTER program combines the special strengths and resources of Clemson University with the individualized instructional programs offered by four historically black colleges in South Carolina: Benedict College, Claflin University, Morris College and South Carolina State University. To provide even greater opportunity and access, students have the option of first attending one of our two-year partner colleges before transferring to one of the four-year institutions to complete their baccalaureate degree.

Call Me MISTER Offers: 

  • Tuition assistance through Loan Forgiveness programs for admitted students pursuing approved programs of study in teacher education at participating colleges.
  • An academic support system to help assure their success.
  • A cohort system for social and cultural support.

For complete procedures for admission to the Call Me MISTER program please click here.

    Future or current Black male and female teachers should read “Between the Rhetoric and Reality”. The book is a must read for Black teachers seeking new educational pedagogical strategies towards eliminating the horrendous and stagnating Black/White ACademic Achievement Gap.
