AME Supported Secondary Schools : LUSENET : A.M.E. Today Discussion : One Thread

Does anyone have information about the number and location of elementary, middle school or high-schools which are privately financed and run by the AMEC? I find it someone ironic that the US Presidential race is talking a lot about education reform in failing inner city school districts [read: black kids are near functionally illiterate]while at the same time the black church remains conspicuously silent. The AMEC is arguably the most educationally gifted of all branches of black Protestanism. It would be a dereliction of social duty if we did not provide alternatives in the form of parochial schooling similar to the success that our Catholic and Hebrew brothers have accomplished across the nation.
