Basic Black: Readin', Writin', & Race

February 12, 2016

This week on Basic Black: education in the news. We’ll look at the controversy over accusations of racism at Boston Latin School; also, a discussion on the persistent trend of racial disparities in discipline, starting with kindergartners; and finally, in his first State of the Commonwealth address last month, Governor Baker called for a raise on the cap for charter schools, so we’ll discuss the pros and cons of a charter school education.

Panelists:
- Latoyia Edwards, Anchor, NECN
- Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz, 2nd Suffolk District, Massachusetts
- Katrina Shaw, Chief Executive Officer, Freedom House
- Tito Jackson, Boston City Councillor, District 7
- Kim McLarin, Associate Professor of Writing, Literature and Publishing, Emerson College
