2. Understanding the School Curriculum Fight
In this episode, we dissect the turbulent landscape of K-12 education and the contentious battles over curriculum content. We explore the societal factors fueling these conflicts, from heightened racial awareness to the challenges posed by remote learning during the pandemic. We then showcase progressive developments, including inclusive social studies standards, the introduction of AP African American Studies, and state policies addressing racial discrimination in schools. This episode invites listeners to engage with the evolving debates in education, advocating for truth and nurturing critical thinking in the next generation.
In this inaugural episode, Kweli and Brielle lay the foundation for their first season, outlining the purpose and mission of the podcast. With their backgrounds in psychology, education, and research, Kweli and Brielle explore the impact of socialization on Black youth and how parents and teachers can equip themselves with the knowledge and tools to support healthy development.
