The Council of Urban Boards of Education (CUBE) supports excellence in urban school board leadership. As part of its mission, CUBE creates educational opportunities for urban school board leaders to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to serve as effective local education policymakers and as advocates for equity in public education.
Committed to addressing the educational challenges that exist in our nation’s urban centers, CUBE helps school boards close the student achievement gap and provide all students equal opportunity to receive a high-quality education, focusing on meeting the needs of our nation’s historically underrepresented and underserved students.
