#1343 "Pushout - The Criminalization Of Black Girls In Schools"

Jun 16, 2016

They always tell me not to start the show with number and I try to obey. But these numbers are pretty stark.  African American girls make up 16 percent of the school population in the US…but they are a third of all school related arrests in the country. Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll talk to a leader in the fight for justice for black girls in school.

We’ll also spend an academic minute looking at what the change in US-Cuban relations means for race relations on the island.
