Is education political?
Dr. Greg Carr, Associate Professor of Afro-American Studies at Howard University rejoins the show to answer this question and more. Host Shayna Terrell and Dr. Carr discuss propaganda as a tool used to control the masses, and how we educate our students about propaganda and how to think critically about it?
The conversation moves on to book banning and whether it is a violation of the first Amendment, and what the process should be to get books banned? Dr. Carr shares what educators should be doing to support the 1st amendment right of our students, and how can educators organize to ensure a right to freedom as teachers?
Finally, Shayna asks Dr. Carr about what we should be teaching in schools, the difference between activism and advocacy, and how we can best prepare our students to be mobilize once they are equipped with knowledge of the world around them.
