The Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit child advocacy organization that has worked relentlessly for more than 40 years to ensure a level playing field for all children.
The Florida A & M University (FAMU) College of Education (COE) is considered the cornerstone college of the University as it was the first and only college, department, or major within the university at its inception in 1887. The COE assumes leadership for the selection, guidance and professional preparation of teacher educators and practitioners who will serve in elementary, secondary, and post-secondary schools, as well as other related agencies of Florida and the nation; and provides a substantial foundation for advanced study as students choose to extend their educational preparation and pursuits.
Founded in 1887, Florida A & M University Developmental Research School (FAMU DRS) was established as a Teacher Training School for Florida A&M University. The school was created specifically for students studying at the grammar school or Colored Normal School. Over the years, the name of the school has changed several times to include Demonstration School, Laboratory School, and FAMU High School. Now, FAMU DRS operate as a designated public school district under the leadership of the FAMU COE Dean.
Established in 1905, the Florida State University (FSU) College of Education is the oldest College of Education in Florida, having provided education to the best and the brightest for well over a century.
