Acadia, DBDLI partner to launch Africentric Bachelor of Education program

Acadia University and the Delmore “Buddy” Daye Learning Institute (DBDLI) are partnering to launch an Africentric Bachelor of Education program. The partnership will provide financial support to help people who are currently working as African Nova Scotian student support workers in Nova Scotia schools transition to teaching in the public school system. “Africentric education centers the knowledge, history, culture, values, lived experiences and worldviews of African Peoples, allowing us to offer students a transformative learning experience that can positively influence their communities and the teaching profession,” said Acadia Associate Professor Dr Késa Munroe-Anderson. The program is funded by Nova Scotia’s Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.
