We are sadly still advocating for families to have internet access.
Lakisha Young

Dang Jason B. That's horrible

exactly!
Laurie Gagnon

New pipelines are essential. Modernizing educator training and diversifying educator populations is another key factor (in addition to broadband access, funding…and so much more).
Carolyn Wilson
53:43
+1 to the need for new pipelines.

When will we began to discuss how Public Education should refunded? The auto-pilot funding model now does not afford Black families who homeschool to get some of those funds to educate their own children
Lakisha Young
59:31
So true Robert!!!
Kathaleena Monds
59:49
Great read “The Color of Law” by Dr. Richard Rothstein
Lakisha Young
01:01:13
Totally agree, Maxine. School choice has dominated the real motivation which is a quality education
Millissa Hare
01:01:28
Where might I find the data referenced on NJ. I lived there and could visibly see what was shared, and would love to be able to show others the data.

In addition to the great book recs from Kathleena, Gilberto and Maxine, I’ll throw in A Fine Line by Tim DeRoche going deep on educational redlining: https://timderoche.com/a-fine-line/
Demetria Giles
01:06:36
Yes, Janelle. The mentality is deeply rooted, and the root is rotten.
Gilberto Cooper
01:06:52
Thank for articulating that, Ms. Wood!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“The Underground History of American Education” by John Taylor Gatto https://ia903006.us.archive.org/13/items/JohnTaylorGattoTheUndergroundHistoryOfAmericanEducationBook/John%20Taylor%20Gatto%20-%20The%20Underground%20History%20of%20American%20Education%20Book.pdf

Bringing tears to my eyes; pain to my soul
Laurie Gagnon
01:09:58
Agree with the importance of mindset shifts @Janelle. Another resource that connects and may be of interest is a recent report on how we use research on mindset shift and the learning sciences to work on changing practice (and the system): https://aurora-institute.org/resource/teachers-making-the-shift-to-equitable-learner-centered-education/

Amen per: Suburbs are not a glorious time
Laurie Gagnon
01:11:39
Yes @Lakisha - we need good choices for every family. And it isn’t one sized fits all, so how can we learn across models and approaches to get there.
Kathaleena Monds
01:12:18
In “The Story of Atlanta University: A Century of Service 1865-1965” by Clarence Bacote, recalls a program that the now Clark Atlanta University started in 1942 called “The People’s College” in which more than 500 people living in proximity to the university came to the campus via partnerships with the business community and churches to offer education for a wide range of citizens – porters, clerks, domestics, housewives, college students, nurses, and a host of others – they recognized the importance of preparing all citizens beyond those on the campus and those enrolled in K-12 schools.
Lakisha Young
01:12:49
I need all 4 of these folks in my life on a daily
Laurie Gagnon
01:13:02
Thank you all - I hate to leave but have a previously scheduled meeting. Keep on keeping on. <3
Kathaleena Monds
01:13:02
“The People’s College” is an example of Pod Schools of yesteryear; however, we continue to think that COVID-19 started a ‘new’ frontier for Black folks when we have been self-determined for YEARS
Chemay Morales-James
01:13:22
New book in case anyone hasn't seen this one on pods & microschools https://www.amazon.com/Havens-Hope-Redesigning-Education-COVID-19/dp/1605547611
Jennifer Davis Poon
01:13:30
Reminder to post your questions for the panel in the Q&A box! We'll be turning to audience questions shortly\
Kathaleena Monds
01:13:59
@Jennifer :-) Okay
Jason
01:14:03
It would be amazing to have all of these books and articles shared out after the webinar.
Lakisha Young
01:14:06
Covid created an opportunity for innovation
Lakisha Young
01:14:16
Especially once we helped families pay bills
Christine Pitts
01:14:16
I'm working on a book list to share
Jason
01:14:24
boom
Gilberto Cooper
01:14:55
@ Ms. Pitts: thank you for the book list!
Lakisha Young
01:15:12
And those of us leading this work are expected to be poorly resourced
Lakisha Young
01:15:25
poorly funded
Kathaleena Monds
01:19:05
Speaking of Teacher Certifications….there are tons of history on Accreditation in America that is another longgggg story - another barrier to entry and opportunity
Sarah Lench
01:20:30
YES. Ed system worship of credential is reproducing oppressive, exclusive power structures.
Lakisha Young
01:21:07
Yes, Sarah! And without the full bandwith of results to justify it
Chemay Morales-James
01:22:11
The idea that someone Requires a "degree" or "certification" needs to be challenged.
Demetria Giles
01:22:12
I love that you all of pushing the boundaries of who can be a teacher.
Demetria Giles
01:22:38
*are pushing
Chris "Citizen" Stewart

WE need to wrap soon. Any big points y’all want to make
Chris "Citizen" Stewart

Scott Van Beck
01:27:16
Robert is right. All of you are right. All of this work begins and revolves around money, specifically, who has the access to it?
Kathaleena Monds
01:28:27
@Maxine true that! Stop thinking of Black children via a deficit lens
Janna Robin
01:29:01
This was just so wonderful. Thank you all so much.
Gilberto Cooper
01:29:04
"Black child as a prototype" -- EXCELLENT!!!!!
Carolyn Wilson
01:29:14
I have heard more truth, practical strategy, wisdom, and hope in this webinar than I have experienced in 40 years of education, policy meetings, round tables and braintrusts. Chris's moderation is artful and the energy of the panelists is inspiring. "all revolutions begin with a conversation
Anna Leonhard
01:29:25
Yes! Thank you!
Kathaleena Monds
01:29:26
Great job panel!
Sarah Lench
01:29:28
Would love to see a panel with Indigenous folks and these panelists to really lift up educational sovereignty and self determination as principles and action
