unequal treatment

Schools on the factory model do not build skills in handling, relating and working with children and their families.  In this video, Ms. Dianis calls for a family-school partnership. I blog about how families have been removed from the educational process by schools that have police power over families instead of a focus on providing a service and building positive relationships with families and kids.

From Suspension Stories, a post with this interview on the Roland Martin show with Judith Browne Dianis of the Advancement Project. 
A recent study by the Yale University Child Study Center shows that Black children -- especially boys -- no matter their family income, receive less attention, harsher punishment and lower marks in school than their White counterparts from kindergarten all the way through college. A subsequent article published in "The Washington Post" reported that Black children in the Washington, D.C. area are suspended or expelled two to five times more often than White children. It's a national trend that needs to be addressed. 
Judith Browne Dianis, co-director of the Advancement Project joined Roland Martin on Washington Watch to discuss this disturbing trend.
