I wish to foster discussion from parents and educators across t he country. I want to be able to discuss the ideas in my book and receive direct feedback from my target market. Also, I want to hear what people have to say regarding suggestions as to how education in America can be improved economically and logically.
Dr. Pedro Noguera is the Peter L. Agnew Professor of Education at New York University. He is a world-renowned sociologist, researcher, and prolific author of several publications, including the seminal book, "The Trouble with Black Boys...and Other Reflections on Race, Equity, and the Future of Public Education."
Dr. Noguera will expound on his critique of current approaches to education reform that are too focused on privatization, high stakes testing, and punitive student discipline. We will talk about how schools can focus on ensuring life successes of students and youth by focusing on true racial and socioeconomic equity.

Tonight on the current issues show we talk about the New York task force reviewing rollout of education reform, New Jersey discussing if they should legalize Marijuana or not, and we talk about the Immigration coalition targeting the GOP Lawmakers.
Public charter vs. traditional public schools, local communities vs. outside reformers, black vs. white. There are many distractions and red herrings in discussions about education reform.
My guest, Dr. Andre Perry, has put many of those distractions on the table in his fascinating novel, The Garden Path: The Miseducation of a City. The novel is set in post-Katrina New Orleans, which has become a key education reform battleground. In Dr. Perry's take, the students prevail over all else. As the former CEO of a charter school network in New Orleans and a university professor there, Dr. Perry crafted The Garden Path on a solid foundation of personal experience.

Is education policy in New Jersey on the right path? Even if the state is heading in the right direction, are we moving too quickly? Assemblywoman Mila Jasey from the 27 Legislative District, vice-chair of the Assembly Education Committee, will provide her insights as she discusses education issues that school board members and administrators need to be aware of. Her comments are particularly relevant, because virtually all education legislation must first be approved by her committee. Please join host Ray Pinney as he discusses these topics and others with the assemblywoman.

Recently, the DC Mayor's election hinged on attitudes toward school reform in the Nation's Capital. Meanwhile, the documentary "Waiting for Superman" follows families trying to get their kids into private schools.

My education reform chapter will show up in a separate blog entry.
