The School to Prison Pipeline - New York Style

Please join Internet radio host Dr. James Avington Miller Jr. for a special report on the School to Prison Pipeline in New York City. Just what is it? Why does it exist? What are its enormous costs? And finally, what is the answer? How can we stop sending our young people to jail and how can we tear down a structure built to incarcerate our children?

Dr. Miller will be reporting on a recent publication from The Center for Popular Democracy and the Urban Youth Collaborative - The $746 Million A Year School to Prison Pipeline - the ineffective, discriminatory, and costly process of criminalizing New York City students.

The report concludes,
"Young people have a vision for their future. They see a future filled with hope and powerful contributions towards creating a just and thriving city for all communities. It is a future in which their schools provide them safe-haven from discrimination and oppression based on race, gender, religion, and sexual orientation. They envision schools that support their needs and provide them with ample opportunities to thrive. Yet as thousands of students, particularly students who are Black, Latinx, or have disabilities, are funneled each year from schools directly into the criminal legal system, we are cutting those dreams short. Investments in heavily policing and punishing NYC students should be re-directed to support a youth-driven vision for inclusive, supportive, safe and successful schools."

Please join us and learn how we can end the incarceration of our young people in New York City and the rest of the nation.

Knowledge is power!

RESISTANCE MATTERS
RESISTANCE IS NOT FUTILE
RESISTANCE IS THE HIGHEST FORM OF EXPRESSION OF DEMOCRACY
RESISTANCE IS SURVIVAL

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.
