Ep 98 – The Miseducation of the Negro Continues

On this payday, Amber and Erika are talking about the unprecedented attack on America’s public schools by conservative Republicans seeking to ban DEI efforts and replace fact-based curricula with ideological propaganda. Joined by Mike Hixenbaugh, investigative journalist behind the podcast series “Southlake” and author of the New York Times bestselling book “They Came for the Schools.” We look at how one suburban town’s fight against diversity initiatives highlights the role racism plays in shaping public education. We also drill down to the dark money driving the efforts to defund public schools and promote vouchers in its stead. Unsurprisingly, these efforts are likely to have a disproportionately negative impact on Black families. Tune in to get the scoop on the fight brewing over America’s public schools.
