Alert: Some of the content of the images and the dialogue on tonight's show may be difficult to see/hear. There are several cases of abuse that brought Ms. Heidinger and other activists to form this movement and we will be discssing some of them.
This week we'll be discussing why personal beliefs and science aren't compatible, why the opinions of children in science classrooms are irrelevant, and what the far-right has done to convince the scientifically illiterate that there's a debate about the veracity of evolution.
Also, Jerry Coyne stepped outside of his realm of expertise and said something stupid about the historicity of Jesus.

The alarming underachievement of African Caribbean boys in British schools and abroad in comparison to other groups is highlighted in Dr. Janet Graham's book. The author adopts an historical perspective to compare West Indian children who arrived in Britain in the 1960s and 1970s (many labelled as ESN) (Coard 1971) to problems faced by black boys in today's classrooms.
Dr. Graham also explores the impact of globalisation, population movement, government policies and diversity on black boys’ education provision in inner city schools in Britain. She investigates masculinity, subcultures, peer group pressures and exclusion from school and their impact on black boys education. The Institutional Focus Study sets the context for the empirical study and provides a perspective from voices of black boys in one inner London school to find out what they think about school, learning, subcultures, peer group pressures and teachers.
As a contrast teachers’ views of the boys are also provided. This book will be of interest to educationalists, teachers, students; parents, school management and government bodies interested in race, diversity, achievement and want to bring about change to improve life chances.
