5.18.14 Education Equity [Radio] – Generation Justice

Congratulations recent graduates! This week’s show focuses on Education Equity. We feature Dr. Augustine Romero of the Tucson Unified School District talking about the revolutionary Social Justice Education Project that he co-founded and that was shut down by the Arizona government.

Then Dr. Jeff Menzise of Morgan State University discusses his work on education equity and his book, “Dumbin’ Down: Reflections on the Mis-Education of the Negro”.

To bring the discussion back to New Mexico, we talk with Professor Dianne Torres-Velasquez of UNM about where we stand, and what can be done.
