War Report on the Road - Live from Buffalo NY - High School Teenager Takes on Billionaire Neoliberals in BOE Election Race

Please join Internet radio host Dr. James Avington Miller Jr. as he reports live from Buffalo NY. Joining Dr. Miller this week will be high school student Austin Harig and parent Jen Mecozzi. Both are running for seats on the Buffalo School Board. Both are taking on the giants of school reform and neoliberal privatization. This school board race is turning out to be a true David vs. Goliath battle.

Austin Harig, a senior at Hutchinson-Central Technical High School, wants to challenge incumbent Carl P. Paladino for the Park District seat. Harig was motivated to run because of the disharmony among School Board members.
“It seems like a lot of students and teachers are getting screwed by the system … and hurt by all the fighting on the School Board,” Harig said. “And nobody was really challenging (the reformers). Somebody needs to speak up.”

Jen Mecozzi is running on the platform that she will bring positive changes to public schools, including: -fully funded and strong public schools; -better communication with parents and the community about what’s happening in our schools; -smaller class sizes; -healthy school lunches; and -better resources and programs for English as a Second Language, as well as other underserved.

The War Report on Public Education

The War Report on Public Education with Dr James Avington Miller Jr
Show Host: 
Dr. James Avington Miller Jr.

The format of THE WAR REPORT ON PUBLIC EDUCATION explores one of the most important events in our life time - the total takeover of our educational system by corporate interests. This show is about the 'corporate' war on public education and the rising public resistance movement to the war. Dr. James Avington Miller, Jr. invites guests from all over who join the rising public resistance movement against the corporate greed taking on our public school system. He is interested in growing a grass-roots movement here in the United States and in Europe against the 'corporate interests' that are limiting both teachers and students everywhere.

This October 2015 he is taking his show on the road as he embarks on a very special project. His long awaited project ‘The People’s Story' is an effort to reach out to those individuals whose voices are not being heard in educational arenas everywhere. He will be interviewing, filming and collecting stories from parents, teachers, students and community members in the rural and urban areas of the Eastern United States to include Maine, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Washington D.C. Many lives are being impacted and harmed by the ongoing corporate war on public education that exists today. The consequence of the rapid privatization of our schools is inhumane and devastating to our teachers, schools and most importantly, our children.

His primary mission is to create a documentary/television series for PBS and the Arts & Entertainment Channel that will expose the human cost of man’s inhumanity to man. The objective is to document people’s stories from each state and create a one hour TV Episode for that state evolving into a 30-35 part series. Dr. Miller expects to have the first TV show ready by next summer. This will propel the ‘corporate war on public education’ front and center as a local, state and national campaign issue. Determined to awaken the world on a national level by providing a series of programs that will lead to understanding the whole picture – he hopes to demand an end to the Corporate Elite and their destruction of public education.

Dr. Miller is seeking funding for ‘The People’s Story’ project from friends, family and the public to cover the expenses that this will entail. If you care about the future of education, please support this most important project and be part of history in the making. This has been and will continue to be Dr. Miller's dream to complete and certainly his life's legacy.
