Recently students and parents Image at Carver Prep and Carver Collegiate charter schools have expressed concerns about  a number of issues at their school.  One of those issues was the excessive use of suspensions for minor issues.    I am discussing this topic this morning on WBOK radio in New Orleans.  You can join the conversation  no matter where you are by visiting http://www.wbok1230am.com today, December 23rd at 10AM Central time.   We’ll talk about the recent letter from the Souther Poverty Law Center which encourages the Collegiate Academies Board and administration to make some changes.  It’s an excellent letter that points out the conflict between what’s written in law and Collegiate Academies very own student handbook.

Listen to the New Orleans Imperative Radio show this morning and if you miss it, it will re-air on http://www.theneworleansimperative.org beginning on December 30th. 

I’ll talk more about this subject after the holiday break.
