Show Overview:

An interview with Dr. Jomo Mutegi

"My research agenda, which addresses the underrepresentation of African Americans in science and science-related careers, consists of three lines of scholarship. In the first I explore students science knowledge as a factor that influences career decisions. In the second line of scholarship I explore racism in student teacher interactions to determine the degree to which race bias inhibits African Americans from pursuing science and science-related careers. The third and most central line of scholarship is educational praxis. Herein I work to use science education as a tool for improving the African American community."

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 this conversation 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
