    Black Children Kicked Out Of Preschool And Into Prison Pipeline


    There is a big problem in our educational system, and it is persistent



    Teacher Bias and Low Expectations Are Part of the Problem

    “Teacher bias” bears responsibility in this dynamic, according to the white paper. “An African American student who exhibits disruptive behavior, even if it is the same behavior exhibited by the White peers, might be perceived as more disruptive because of teacher bias” (2015) ...

    Push back...more Black parents need to have a presence in their children's schools and know their rights. I already know some will blame this problem on the younger generation of single parents who were never taught or learned "good" parenting skills so our children and grandchildren are at risk in a system that stereotypes them, tracks them to fail and throws them away where they will likely become another negative statistic in society.

    In spite of racial oppression, healthy parenting skills can be taught and learned. For Black families that would need to include teaching and nurturing healthy self-esteem, confidence and courage to stand up for what they believe is best for them against a system determined to destroy, abuse or use them for greed and personal gain of others.

    Parents must have these same characteristics in order to pass them on to future generations. our children need to know parents can be trusted and depended on to protect them, love them and even correct them.

    I don't mean for this to sound philosophical, but practical. We need better and more practitioners of healthy parenting that includes activism for changing systems that assault Black people.
