Show overview:

An Interview with Dr. Kristen Buras

By now, you are aware of the New Orleans education story that occurred after the Katrina Hurricane.  What you probably don't know, are the facts as recorded by researchers on the impact of charter schools on a community of color.  Dr. Kristen Buras h as written several books and articles on corporate education reform, a term that many researchers take offense to and have named it slave market reform.

NCEBC wants to welcome the full village to question, understand, and ask questions, about governance, educational policy, finances, resources and the basic democratic principles of equity, fairness and justice.  It is important (if not vital) that we have conversations to continue to dispel the myth that black children are incapable of achieving high test scores, therefore public schools are incapable of providing quality education.

"We believe in accountability.  We believe that data drives decision-making.  We believe in research-based practices.  These principles have been used for generations by high performing schools, principals and Superintendents; especially those working and succeeding in urban communities were poverty and race are the dominant elements.   This conversation is about the politics, power, economics and restructuring of a public school system into a charter school system".

Diana Daniels, Executive Director, National Council on Educating Black Children

Join hosts Dr. Nicole Walters and Mr. Michael "Chappie" Grice, both NCEBC Board of Director Members, on NCEBCTalkRadio on Monday November 2, at 10AM (EST)
