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.
This Sunday Dr. Miller examines the many changing purposes of Public Education and the battle over who and what defines this purpose. What kind of education would be appropriate to speak to the needs of the modern student in society? What are we educating our students for? Why do you, as parents, send your children to school? Why do you, as teachers, teach? These questions are important tools in understanding the many changing purposes of education. As there is no single right answer, it is up to all of us to engage our communities around these critical questions.
Join us this Sunday, August 20 on BBS Radio as we open the show up for an OPEN MIC hour with host Dr. Miller for the purpose of you, our listeners, to call in with questions or opinions about the topics we have covered thus far on show. We will also be celebrating a very special birthday - HAPPY BIRTHDAY DR. MILLER!! He will be talking about his life, his work and his goals for the future. This would be the time when a phone call to wish him a 'Happy Birthday' would truly be appreciated! Help make his day a special one!!
