Disrupting the School to Prison Pipeline | Benjamin Williams | TEDxFoggyBottom

Through the lens of restorative justice, Dr. Benjamin Williams discusses using the school system as a tool for empowering young men of color.

Ron Brown College Preparatory High School was created to do just that. Dr. Williams, the principal of Ron Brown, explores the benefits and challenges of this revolutionary approach to education. Benjamin Williams, Ph.D. is the current and founding principal of Ron Brown College Preparatory High School, an all-male public high school in Washington, DC. Prior to this position he served as the Associate Principal at School Without Walls @ Francis Stevens in Washington, DC for two years. Dr. Williams served as an assistant principal, Dean of Students, and Social Studies Teacher in Albemarle County, VA and Newark, NJ. As a result of the discipline, courage, and drive his teachers, coaches, and administrators instilled in him, Dr. Williams knew he eventually wanted to have that same impact on a young person’s life. He stays motivated by seeing the genuine joy and understanding that students demonstrate when they realize they can accomplish or overcome anything that they set their minds to, constantly preaching that it is not where you begin but where you end. Dr. Williams received his Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctorate of Philosophy in Leadership and Administration from the University of Virginia. He also has an Executive Master’s of Leadership from Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business.

Askwith Debates – Charter Schools: Expanding Opportunity or Reinforcing Divides?

Speakers:

Derek Black, professor of law, School of Law, University of South Carolina
Cornell Williams Brooks, former president and CEO, NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People); visiting professor, Boston University; senior fellow, Brennan Center for Justice.
Alisha Thomas Morgan, superintendent, Ivy Preparatory Academies; former state representative, GA.
Gerard Robinson, Ed.M.’95, executive director, Center for Advancing Opportunity
Moderator: Martin West, associate professor of education, HGSE; deputy director, Program on Education Policy and Governance, Harvard Kennedy School

Rapid growth in the number of public charter schools, which now serve more than three million students nationwide, has sparked debate over their implications for educational equity. Proponents contend that charters provide an escape valve for low-income, mostly minority students in struggling school districts, while critics allege that charters serve a select few, reinforce racial and economic school segregation, and destabilize urban communities. Some prominent organizations within the civil rights community have called for a moratorium on charter growth. Do charter schools enhance or undermine equity in American education? Should their growth be encouraged or curtailed? Join us as leading educators, policymakers, and researchers come together to debate the charter school movement and its future.

Higher Education and Intergenerational Mobility: Featuring Raj Chetty

Which U.S. colleges best help children climb the income ladder? How can we increase access to such colleges for children from low-income families? Economist Raj Chetty takes on these questions in a bold new study, pointing to public higher education as a key agent of change: CUNY alone propels almost six times as many low-income students into the middle class and beyond as all eight Ivy League campuses combined. Chetty joins the GC’s Presidential Professor Philip Kasinitz (Sociology); Presidential Professor Leslie McCall (Sociology and Political Science), associate director of the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality; and moderator David Leonhardt of The New York Times, with opening remarks by Chancellor James B. Milliken. Taped: February 6, 2017.

Money as a Democratic Medium | The Color of Money: Banking and Racial Inequality (with Slides)

In the American tradition, commercial banking claimed public support in exchange for delivering public services. It has become increasingly clear that those services are both failing the poor and distributing resources, including access, authority, profits, and credit, along lines of race.

Drug Court: Justice Meets Treatment | Tina Nadeau | TEDxPiscataquaRiver

Incarceration does not treat addiction, it cultivates it. As NH and the nation faces a crippling opioid epidemic, Chief Justice of NH’s Superior Court Justice Tina Nadeau explains that if we want to increase public safety, reduce costs of incarceration and return offenders to the community as productive members, we need to invest in alternatives to incarceration. One alternative — drug courts — has proven very effective in treating the underlying conditions that result in criminal behavior.

Tina Nadeau is the Chief Justice of the New Hampshire Superior Court. She was appointed to the bench in 1996 and began serving as Chief Justice in 2011. Prior to her appointment to the bench, she served as legal counsel to Governor Stephen Merrill.

She began her legal career in 1989 as an assistant attorney general in the homicide division. In 2013, Judge Nadeau received the Caroline Gross Fellowship award to attend the Kennedy School of Government on Executive Leadership; the 2013 Eric Cogswell Achievement award, recognizing commitment to addressing the over-incarceration of offenders with mental illness; and she was the 2013 recipient of the Marilla Ricker award, presented by the NH Bar to women in leadership positions.

In 2015 she received the Advocacy award from New Futures and the Wheelok-Nardi award from Greater Manchester Mental Health for her work advocating for those with mental health and substance abuse issues.
