Show Overview:

An interview with DR. JERLANDO F. L. JACKSON

“In my research, I’m looking for insight into what it takes to change a culture,” Jackson says. “What I’ve found is that oftentimes, what it takes is someone willing to go it alone, because usually, when you’re the first to do something, you’re doing it alone.” -Dr. Jerland F. L. Jackson

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
