By any measure on the education spectrum, African American boys are at the bottom - except when it comes to discipline, drop outs and detention.  Why does this particular group struggle so much to get a good education?  What is happening in our schools to prevent Black boys from excelling?  On this SPECIAL EDITION of Another View we'll talk with Educator and Author Dr. Marco Clark, and Attorney Amos Jones about breaking the "cradle to prison" pipeline and helping our Black boys succeed.  It's an Another View Special Edition this THURSDAY, March 30 at 1P on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live at anotherviewradio.org!

Last year education leaders throughout Eastern Virginia took a hard look at the way our students are being educated.  They realized that equality in schools - providing the same for everyone - only works when students are all in the same place and need the same things to succeed.  Instead, it has become necessary to provide equity in education - honoring that all students are different and will need different things to succeed. So how does that translate into the classroom?  On the next Another View, we'll get an update on "Excellence Through Equity".  Our guests include Jim Roberts, PhD, Superintendent, Chesapeake Public Schools; Sheli Porter, Director of High School Curriculum and Instruction, Chesapeake Public Schools; and Rashard Wright, Chief Schools Officer, Virginia Beach Public Schools.  Join us for the next Another View, Friday, March 17 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!

On the next Another View an open and  honest conversation with author and journalist Monique Morris, author of "Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools".  In her book, Morris shares compelling stories of girls who have been marginalized and degraded, according to Morris, by the very institutions designed to teach them to be successful in society.  She talks about how zero-tolerance policies and judgment only serve to alienate girls who are already struggling with issues like poverty and difficult home lives.  She also offers solutions that will allow Black girls to live and learn with dignity, respect and opportunity.  Join us for  Another View, Friday, September 16 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!

"The year 1619 is a landmark for the United States and especially for Virginia.  Three cultures - American Indian, English and African - began forging the seeds of democracy, diversity and opportunity." That quote comes from Senator Thomas K. Norment, Jr., co-chair of the 2019 Commemoration.  The official launch of  "American Evolution Virginia to America 1619-2019" begins this weekend with the commemoration of African Arrival Day at Fort Monroe in Hampton.

According to Virginia Beach Public School officials, it is a "moral imperative to prepare ALL students to graduate career, college and/or military ready".  To this end, this school division leads the efforts to ensure "excellence through equity" not only in Virginia Beach, but among school divisions throughout Hampton Roads.  Creating equity in schools addresses issues such as poverty, discipline disparities and  underrepresentation of minority students in advanced courses. On the next Another View we'll talk about "excellence through equity" with the Superintendent of Virginia Beach Public Schools, Aaron Spence, Ed.D, and Rashard J. Wright, M.T., Ed.S., . Chief Schools Officer.  Join us for Another View, Friday, May 27 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!
