George Lucas Educational Foundation

Mateen Diop

I am a lifelong educator and I believe in the possibilities. The possibility life can offer with a good, solid education. I am a product of the inner-cities of America and have suffered through many of the travails African-American men face. However, I have achieved (through education) in spite of. I spent 6 years in the US Air Force before I began my teaching career and I thank God for every day of those 6 years, since the military is what prepared me to teach.

I am supporter of single-gender classrooms/schools. I wrote my dissertation on the subject and it is published and available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other book sites. I believe that we must focus more of our efforts toward the education of the minority males in our schools. I plan to do whatever it takes to achieve and provide more educational opportunities for our males, where none exist.
