Shadow Politics with Senator Michael Brown and Maria Sanchez and guest Dr. James Avington Miller, Jr.

Discussions of CRITICAL RACE THEORY have been banned in several school systems and lauded in others. Maria and I will speak with Dr. James Avington Miller, Jr. and try to get to the bottom of the controversy behind critical race theory.  Be part of the conversation by calling into the *LIVE* show with your comments and questions at (888) 627-6008.

This is our LAST broadcast of 'THE WAR REPORT ON PUBLIC EDUCATION' titled: Call to War -Teachers Becoming Leaders  - We Need to Win the War! Again, Dr. Miller sends out a 'call to all teachers' to become the leaders we so desperately need to help serve a larger purpose. That purpose is to stop the neoliberal privatization war striving to control education, humanity and the planet. He will also conclude his appeal for the new urban research high school with its Positive Youth Development curriculum and pedagogy.

Black History Month 2018, Part 2 - The Importance of Black American Women. This week's show will explore the importance of Black American Women who helped change our country for more than 300 years. Dr. Miller provides examples of how Black American women contributed in developing America into a world leader and power. He will also be continuing his teachings on what it means to become a Positive Youth Development (PYD) School and how we can all engage in birthing a movement across this country to change the state of public education.

Please join Dr. James Avington Miller Jr. for our second show on 'REAL' school choice. He will lay out the vision, mission, and goals he has for Positive Youth Development (PYD) Schools. What will a PYD School look like from the ground up? Dr. Miller will explore and explain such things as what teacher training requirements would be in a PYD School. He will explain how the school will be based on inquiry and problem-based learning, service learning, social justice education and civic education and engagement. Everything in this new school will be done from a critical framework.

Please join Internet radio host Dr. James Avington Miller Jr. as he continues to closely examine the Restorative Justice movement in our urban public schools. The end game of the war on public education is its destruction and the creation of a privatized network of schools. To accomplish this end, weapons were and are employed: zero tolerance, no excuses, criminalization of students' behavior in school, and the school to prison nexus.

Please join Internet radio host Dr. James Avington Miller Jr. for an in-depth look at 'Restorative Justice & Dismantling of School to Prison Pipeline' in our public schools. Dr. Miller will explain how social justice, restorative justice, and the school to prison pipeline are all connected and how dismantling the pipeline can come about through restorative justice practices in our public schools.

Please join Internet radio host Dr. James Avington Miller, Jr. for a close look at public school teachers as public intellectuals, engaged educators, and warriors for educational and social justice. Just what does it take to be a real teacher in 2017? Dr. Miller will lead us to a heightened understanding of our roles as leaders and educators.Taking an active stand in the war on public education can be very detrimental to one's health and career given both the expectations of the profession and the political climate in which we find ourselves. Dr.
