We're supposed to be equal, but we are constantly faced with this issue of racism. This weeks topic is based on the story about the teachers arrested in Atlanta, for cheating on a standardized test. Eleven of those teachers out of twenty are being sentenced to twenty years for cheating on a standardized test. Of course, those eleven being sentenced are black teachers; while all of the other 9 white teachers walk away scott free. In this segment you will have your chance to express your views on this controversial topic. Are these teachers getting what they deserve, or is the punishment over the top? You will also get to speak with Waleeka a financial advisor. She will share her financial experiences, and show us how to get out of financial debt. Please, make sure you tune in; this segment will definitely leave you empowered, enriched, and encouraged to do great things. We will see you in the playhouse.
Schools are no longer a path to cultivation and a life of the mind; they are on a path of a job. Along the way, as schools became a training ground for corps of workers, they also became a means of furthering national interests. The debate about schools had become part of the debate about national power. Which brings us to the twenty-first century.
When George W. Bush announced No Child Left Behind (NCLB), his purported intention was to encourage a set of practices and institute a set of assessments that would ensure every child got the same good start at school. Implicit in that formulation was the now familiar premise that it was up to schools to close the income gap between the rich and the poor. In its most beneficent form, it could have made a powerful difference in the lives of many children. If NCLB had ensured that all kids would learn how to read and that no child would become disenchanted enough to drop out, it might have been wonderful. But that’s not how NCLB played out.
Within just a few years, teachers were rushing to make sure that each child got a higher score on the standardized tests than he or she had gotten the year before. School superintendents also felt compelled to see to it that their schools got higher scores every year. What had been promoted as a means of ensuring that all children received the fruits of our educational system became a relentless push toward improved test scores. With each year, more and more focus was on the scores themselves and less on the education the scores were intended to measure. At the national level, politicians threatened that if we didn’t educate everyone, once again our country might fall behind. The conversation was less about giving everyone access to reading, thoughtful engagement in civic life, or the pleasures of ideas, and much more about seeing to it that everyone could earn a decent wage.
