In a groundbreaking new study - The Broken Compass: Parental Involvement with Children's Education, Dr. Angel Harris and Dr. Keith Robinson have discovered that parental involvement, at least the way it is currently envisioned, doesn't quite work the way we think it does to ensure students' academic success.
They will talk to us about their research, what it means for the future of parent engagement, what schools should focus on instead, and what parents can and should do to support their children.
Host Allison R. Brown is a civil rights attorney and President of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which creates education equity plans and promotes equity in education in compliance with federal law.

Today's guests, Drs. Angel Harris and Keith Robinson will discuss their book "The Broken Compass: Parental Involvement with Children's Education." Many of their research findings turn our traditional beliefs about a child's school achievement and its relationship to parental involvement with school on its head.
Angel Harris is a Professor of Sociology at Duke University. His research interests include social inequality, policy, and education. My work focuses on the social psychological determinants of the racial achievement gap. Specifically, I examine the factors that contribute to differences in academic investment among African Americans, Latino/as, Asian Americans, and Whites. I also study the impact that adolescents' perceptions of opportunities for upward socio-economic mobility have for their academic investment, and the long-term effects of youths' occupational aspirations both within the United States and Europe.
Keith Robinson is An Assistant Professor of Sociology at The University of Texas at Austin. His research focuses on the determinants and implications of test score (achievement) inequality in K-12 education. Dr. Robinson's work highlights the extent to which family and school factors contribute to achievement inequality, and suggests ways to equalize these differences. Much can be learned by examining the various stages of K-12 education since the determinants of achievement disparities change as children progress through schooling.

The Yardie Skeptics return this Sunday, August 2nd ar 12:30pm EDT (11:30am Jamaica time) to blaze up the airwaves with yet another hot button topic - can secular humanism serve as a guiding principle for a society? Can a philosophical system which is not subjected to the dictates of a deity provide the necessary moral framework for social stability? If gods aren't in charge, then who? Men? Is secular humanism simply a way for atheists to impose their ideology on society and force theists into the margins?
Joining us live in studio will be secular humanists Peter John Williams and Robin Gane-McCalla, Suzette Gardner, and Mandisa Thomas. We will be hearing from them about their journeys as humanists as well as their involvement in organizations which seek to foster and educate persons on the principles of secular humanism. You don't want to miss out on your chance to put secular humanism under a microscope!
