Tonight on Elevated Minds we will discuss the ever present School to Prison pipeline and how it is crippling our minority youth, in particular young minority males. The statistics show that Our schools are twice as likely to pair poor and minority students with brand new teachers and almost four times more likely to suspend black students than white students.
The achievement gap between low-income and wealthy students has grown significantly. Just as alarming, we still see large achievement gaps by race and ethnicity. Fewer than one in five African-American fourth graders is proficient in reading and Latino eighth graders are less than half as likely to be proficient in math as their white peers. We will also evaluate how the prison system tends to throw the book at young minority men over any other race. We will be joined by one of the CEO's of RAE (Ressurectin After Exoneration) Jerome Morgan.. He will be joining us to discuss the mission of the RAE organization and his ongoing batle with being wrongfully convicted. You will not want to miss this powerful episode of ElevatedMinds.
