    Facts and Myths: The School to Prison Pipeline

    in Education

    In February 2013, NCEBC launched NCEBCTalkRadio with a weekly radio show as a resource for urban educators, parents, and members of the "Community Faculty". The worldly insights of Host, Dr. Eric Cooper meshed with the culturally-astute and melodious tone of co-host, Dr. Nicole McZeal Waters in what became somewhat of an instant hit! Early shows welcomed the likes of Dr. Linda Darling-Hammond (Stanford University), Dr. Yvette Jackson (National Urban Alliance), Dr. Raymond Winbush (Morgan State University), and a 6 weeks series with experts from the Annenberg Institute.  Today NCEBCTalkRadio offers two regular radio programs and is considered a primary component of the NCEBC "tool-kit" geared toward urban educators. 

    On Monday, May 11, 2015, we return to the airwaves with a conversation on "Derailing the School to Prison Pipeline (STPP) for Black Males" providing effective interventions that address both academics and behavior issues. The Equity Project in Indiana represented by Director, Dr. Russell Skiba, Dr. Gwen Kelley and Ms. Chrystal Gray will join our hosts along with Principal and Author, Mr. Roy Dobbs to engage listeners in an open dialogue on myths and facts on how and why black boys end up in School-to-Prison-Pipeline.They will share characteristics of effective black male programs while welcoming callers with questions and comments.

    NCEBC will host this conversation with an "Open Mic" approach. We want to hear the voices of our emerging new leadership.....Voices of The Next Millennium. Education, Social Justice, Mass Incarcerations, Health Care, Voting Rights and Labor are topics to be explored. We invite our entire listening audience to participate in the conversation on Twitter, Facebook, text, phone call and email.

    Cancelling the "Cradle to Prison" Pipeline

    in Education

    The National Council on Educating Black Children commends our President Barack Obama for developing a national initiative for Black and Latino Males; an elevated focus that is  supported by our Board of Directors and our  membership.   

    Far too long, too many young males of color have been sacrificed, by the wealthiest nation on the planet.  In the words of Nelson Mandela, "You can judge the soul of a nation by the way it treats their children." The declaration to elevate this discussion to a national level is welcomed with exuberance.

    NCEBC continues to address the areas research identifies as correlates with school failure. We collaborate with stakeholders, and maintain a growing partnership with faith-based institutions, school districts, and community centers, to establish Augustus F. Hawkins Literacy Centers.  Currently there are 17 Literacy Centers operating in 6 states.  NCEBC provides a challenging and culturally relevant curriculum for grades preK-6,that is in alignment with common core standards, and a strong focus on identity development.  Pre and post reading assessments are given to students enrolled in our school-based centers, in addition all students receive three age-appropriate books a year, for their personal library.  We encourage the incorporation of technology to under-grid instruction in our Literacy Centers.  

    On Monday, March 9, 2015, at 10:00am ET,  we will revisit the Cancelling the "Cradle to Prison" Pipeline episode of NCEBCTalkRadio.

    There has been a lot of talk over the years about the school to prison pipeline and how students as young as third grade are not only written off but prepared for juvenile centers and prison.

    We will touch on the school to prison pipeline that sociologists, psychologists and others have been speaking about for so many years, and how it is affecting today's students, particularly children with autism and other disabilities in our schools.

    Do you have (or know of someone who has) a child with a disability who has been threatened with arrest or abused at school?

    Zackery Max Driver from prison pipeline to total physical and emotional freedom

    in Motivation

    Will you take the steps neccessary to completely change how you approach everything? Will you have the strength to stop looking over your shoulder in defense and look straight ahead into a world of abundance? Zackery Max Driver did and he wants to show you how.

    When I was still a child I was placed in the school to prison pipeline and my education was replaced with incarceration. To most my Life story was written down in the books. When I was 20 years old I was sentenced to 89 months in Washington Department of Correction and in the beginning I was functioning from my cultural ego however, the last 4 years of my life incarcerated were jammed packed with beautiful life lessons and spiritual epiphanies. In fact, they have been the genesis of my realization of my TRUE self and awakening of my consciousness.

    It seems like yesterday I was an unmotivated, lazy, procrastinating, selfish and sluggish 320 pound mess, lacking confidence and suffering from low self-esteem and the worst of identity crisis. I have overcome these horrific tragedies of life being lived and deep states of unconsciousness. This is why I am 100% sure you will do the same and the very reason why I will give you 300% (100% physical, 100% spiritual and 100% mental) each and every time! I believe in YOU, we can do it! Let’s be the change we want to see in the world!

    * I am a Certified Toastmaster (public speaker) and would LOVE to speak at your next event  or school about my experiences and the future possibilities I see for our community!

    ** I am also a Certifiied Master Trainer through the International Sports Science Association. I have a passion for personal training and Life coaching.
