Please join Dr. James Avington Miller Jr. as he hosts this week's War Report radio show featuring our very special guest Dr. Victoria M. Young.
Dr. Victoria M. Young is an education advocate and activist. She is a parent who spent 20 years of service in classrooms, on school committees, and in her community. She is a parent who has devoted a large part of her life to fighting for quality public education for ALL children.
Her book, The Crucial Voice of the People, Past and Present: Education's Missing Ingredient, is a call to action for America's citizens to stop being passive and to take back our public education and schools.
Some of the critical issues in the war on public education to be discussed on the show will be:
- Do America's citizens understand that public policies have resulted in severely unequal and inadequate education particularly for disadvantaged children?
- Do the American people genuinely believe in providing equal educational opportunity for our millions of children in low performing schools?
- What will it take to profoundly redirect America's fundamentally flawed and destructive "test and sanctions" law and policies so that schools improve and provide ALL our children a good education?
