SORT BY Relevancy
Some 88 out of 97 schools in Detroit closed recently after teachers called in sick in protest of rodent and mold problems. There are complaints of an odious smell of mold and mildew that hits you like a ton of bricks when you step through the front doors at Spain Elementary-Middle School in Detroit. Once a school any city would be proud to have in its district. Today, it’s the poster child for neglect and indifference to a quality teaching and learning environment for some 500 students.
The gym is closed because half of the floor is buckled and the other half suffered so much rainwater damage from the dripping ceiling that it became covered with toxic black mold. Instead of professionally addressing the problem, a black tarp simply was placed over the entire area. That area of the school has since been condemned.
The once beautiful pool sits empty because no one has come to fix it. The playground is off-limits because a geyser of searing hot steam explodes out of the ground.
Exposed wires hang from missing ceiling tiles. Watermarks from leaks abound. Kids either sit in freezing classrooms with their coats on or strip off layers because of stifling heat.
Complaints to Darnell Earley, the emergency manager over the Detroit Public Schools have seemingly fallen on deaf ears.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” – Martin Luther King
We cannot remain silent about the events taking place in Flint, MI, and Detroit Public Schools. The most important and abundant natural resource in Michigan, is now harming the community and most importantly, the future of the children. In Detroit, the right to a quality education in a clean, safe, and healthy environment is threatened due to deplorable learning facilities. What’s Going On? Are these isolated events, or the results of cruel intentions. Why the long-term neglect?
Join us and special guests Ray C. Johnson, Portia Roberson and others, as we put these events in context and discuss solutions that we all can be a part of.

A discussion with Ms. Linda Harris, Mr. Patrick Jones and Mr. James Taylor. Show title "What Successful Urban Schools Do! Experts Share Best Practices.
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
