The idea that the public school system is a set up for the Afrikan child is no secret, or at least it shouldn't be. Schools in Philadelphia are being closed at a record breaking rate yet millions of dollars are being spent on the building of new prisons. The question is simple...Why? "The Mind Beneath the School" will revisit this question and see if the answers are differnt than they were when we posed it 2 years ago. We will look at the presidential election and local politics to see if we are getting any answers from those we have elected or plan to elect. Finally, what should the collective Afrikan agenda be moving forward into the future. Also, my next pyramid building Imhotep High School graduate guest, Tierra Holmes, will be on tap discussing her plans after graduating from Howard University with a double major, and what she plans to do with this degree in the near future. This is a HEAVY MINDED SISTA and I look forward to having her on the show.
This is a special 2 hour segment of "The Mind Beneath the School". We will disect the miseducation of the Afrikan scholar in Philadelphia. First, we will define "miseducation" to ensure we are all on the same page. Then with the help of ancestors Carter G. Woodson, Asa Hilliard, and John Henrik Clarke, along with Dr. Umar Johnson and Noam Chomsky we will really go all in and uncover the who, what, when, where, and how of this same said miseducation. I will also unveil, "Mama's 10 Point Plan" agenda which I will present at all neighborhood meetings, (listen to Short Walk...Part 1), and anywhere I feel it will have a forum in which it will be received.
The second hour will deal with "Special Education, a whole new miseducation of the Afrikan Scholar". This is a piece I will be discussing a lot. In order to understand the true nature of special education and the Afrikan scholar you must have an understanding of the racist structure that put it in place under the guise of specialized education andrecognize buzz words like "differentiated instruction".
I will also have special guest and former scholar of mine Tierra Holmes. She will be discussing graduating from Howard University and whats in her future. This show will be informative and entertaining I promise.So stop by so we can once again uncover "The Mind Beneath the School".
Tonight we will be discussing the School to Prison Pipeline Epidemic. While some students are getting educated, other students are getting sent to the juvenile system due to lack of school resources, policy changes, and political acts. So tune into
Katara's Spot at 10:00 pm Eastern Standard Time!!!!
Another feature show done right here on TRU RADIO NETWORK.
TURN ON, TUNE IN, AND TURN UP
The School-to-Prison Pipeline is identified as a real and intense system in which students find themselves routinely suspended, expelled and often times sent to alternative educational programs or schools. Kids who find themselves in this situation ultimately begin to fall further behind in school, have juvenile contact, and end up in prison.
Join host Hakim Crampton as he reads from Chapter 3 of his book America's Pipeline to Prison.

This episode will discuss the pros and cons of Georgia's first prison charter school and the aftermath of the Atlanta Public School cheating scandal. We will discuss the role of public schools and how charter schools may balance the scales of giving people a fair chance in education. We will discuss why investing in Americans in public school is better than waiting until after they are incarcerated. We will discuss why reform that places an emphasis on investing in inmates versus prevention and intervention is a failed cause.

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.
It is unconscionable but true the arrest rate in America has gone down but the prison incarceration rate has exponentially gone up! The inner city needless to say has the greatest percentages and people of color are disproportionately affected. Public awareness is necessary for us to make the changes and the will to put forth the effort will require love and courage. The data is undeniable the question is do we have the will to address it.
On Todays show we are discussing the Pipeline to prison : How are African Americans less than 30% of this country's population , yet 60% of those locked up in prison. This will be a epic conversation and we invite you to jump in and let your voice be heard. Jump in the conversation and let your voice be heard
