I Don’t Know But I Been Told Column: Principal Westberg Coming Off Suspension And Back To SouthWest And Superintendent Dr. Talley To Get Rid Of Some Dead Weight At The Central Office

Someone told me tonight that they heard Principal John Westberg was coming back to SouthWest. Oh well.

Also I have heard twice that the new Superintendent of Edgecombe County Public Schools Dr. Wayne Talley said he was going to get rid of some dead weight at the Central Office. Oh well.

Can’t wait to see how all of this unfolds. LOL

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised.

With Republicans back in charge of the House of Representatives, funding for NPR and PBS is in grave danger. Again.

The Republicans just released their budget proposal, and it zeroes out funding for both NPR and PBS—the worst proposal in more than a decade.1

They probably think that no one will notice these cuts in the midst of so many others. But the millions of listeners and viewers who rely on public broadcasting for "Sesame Street," "All Things Considered," and independent journalism will notice.

We need to tell Republicans that cutting off funding was unacceptable last time they were in charge, and it’s unacceptable now.

Add your name to the petition to save NPR and PBS

The petition says: "Congress must protect NPR and PBS and guarantee them permanent funding, free from political meddling."

Thanks for all you do.

ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION: THE FUTURE OF PUBLIC EDUCATION FOR BLACK CHILDREN IN PITT COUNTY SCHOOLS: Re-Segregation and Unitary Status

Dear Community:

You are cordially invited to participate in a roundtable discussion on the topic of:

THE FUTURE OF PUBLIC EDUCATION FOR BLACK CHILDREN IN PITT COUNTY SCHOOLS: Re-Segregation and Unitary Status.

The discussion will be held on Saturday, February 19, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. in the Leslie Building at Pitt Community College.

Over the past 10 years the achievement gap between black and white students in Pitt County Schools has widened. On average, Black students score about 150 points below white students on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), reducing their chances of entering and completing college. Black students are disproportionately placed on out of school suspension for minor subjective offenses, reducing the amount of time actually spent in classroom instruction. Pitt County Schools’ high school test scores declined over the past six years and black students disproportionately drop out of high school. Some believe that black students are worse off today than they were ten years ago.

In the past, the black community vigorously fought against segregation and racial isolation and won substantial gains in court or through the U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division and gained the rights to have elected representation on local boards and commissions, including the Pitt County Board of Education.

On November 15, 2010, the Pitt County Board of Education voted 7-4 to re-segregate three schools located in the City of Greenville and one school in Winterville. These three Greenville city schools were crafted, by the Board of Education, to be low income, low achieving, under resourced, racially identifiable black schools starting during the 2011-2012 school year. The black community was visibly absent from participation in the process and the three African American elected school board members led the vote along with four whites to re-segregate black children. This has raised a policy discussion within the black community as to where the black community stands on the future of the education of black children in Pitt County Schools.

The Pitt County Coalition for Educating Black Children along with its legal counsels is presently reviewing whether to mount a federal court challenge to the school board’s decision to re-segregate and need to hear the views of the black community and its leadership before committing substantial resources to a court challenge. We need to know whether the black community wants re-segregation or not, and how you feel black children will be impacted by this recent school board decision.

Please come out and participate in this important event.
