    Talk Back Tuesday's: Atlanta Public School Scandal!

    in Self Help

    Last Tuesday, eight Atlanta Public Schools employees were sentenced to prison in one of the largest school cheating scandals in American history. The educators were convicted of racketeering — a felony typically reserved for mob bosses, drug kingpins and terrorists.

    While similar scandals have occurred in 39 different states and Washington, D.C., the offenders have rarely been prosecuted as criminals. Yet in an unprecedented move, the prosecutors in Atlanta charged the educators under Georgia's "Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act" — a law passed in 1980 specifically to combat the scourge of organized crime. RICO laws, which EXIST at the federal level and in 33 states, empower prosecutors to go after the leaders of organized crime who order but do not personally commit crimes such as robbery, money laundering and murder. Individuals convicted under such laws can face up to 20 years in prison.

    Did the charges fit the crime? Was this organized crime? or simply unethical? Are we so familiar with justice not being served that when it is we think its unjust or even racism. Is this a prime example of overciminization in America? And most importantly What about the CHILDREN? 

    Call in and let's discuss this case and the educational system in America today. How can we improve or change the systemic and blatant disregard for education and justice for the real victims in this case. Come Get on the COUCH and let's talk about this and much more!!!!

    Assault on Public Education

    in Politics

    Last week the majority in the state legislature, under the leadership of Gov. Sam Brownback passed a new controversial law providing "block grant" funding to our public schools. The agenda has many critics, and may force a constitutional crisis in the supreme court. Later this week from March 28 - 30 people will be walking from Johnson County (NE Kansas) to the Topeka statehouse to raise awareness and promote participation of the public.


    Information about this event is at Game on for Kansas Schools. Stay tuned to RFK for updates.


    Today we will broadcast a special program on the corporate attempt to take over and privatize our public schools with Charter Schools. The show will expose how the "reform" movement under Obama's "Race to the Top" is being used as a guise to bring about this privatization of our public schools. You'll learn how they're doing it, who's behind it and what you can do about it.


    The Assault on Public Education is produced in the studio of WWUH 91.3 FM at the University of Hartford and airs on the last Monday of every month from 12- 1:00 PM.. at WWUH 91.3 FM (www.wwuh.org)

    The Rift of the Black Prophetic Public Intellectual

    in Christianity

    On Monday the New Republic Magazine released an essay from Dr. Michael Eric Dyson openly rebuking his former mentor and friend Dr. Cornel West. The article created a firestorm across social media as the two giants of black public intellectuals have been assailing each other primarily over their views of President Barack Obama. Both men have created a significant voice in the black world as scholars, prophets and commentators on the perils of the black world. How does this rift affect the black community and the black church? Is there room for black intellectuals in today's post modern world?
