Levitra vs viagra Yesterday was Youth Day in South Africa, levitra vs viagra so I woke up this morning with this song in my head.

Levitra vs viagra Soweto Uprising

Levitra vs viagra Youth Day commemorates the 16 June 1976 peaceful student uprising in Soweto, levitra vs viagra to which the Apartheid era police responded with deadly force, levitra vs viagra shooting schoolchildren dead in the streets. Levitra vs viagra Photos of the police riot awakened the world to the realities of Apartheid while the responding protests among black South Africans renewed the movement that would culminate, levitra vs viagra in 1994, levitra vs viagra with the election of then-imprisoned activist Nelson Mandela to the presidency of South Africa.

Levitra vs viagra Soweto massacre

Levitra vs viagra Soweto Blues, levitra vs viagra here sung by Miriam Makeba, levitra vs viagra tells the story of that dreadful day. Levitra vs viagra The verses are in English, levitra vs viagra the refrain in Xhosa/Zulu. Levitra vs viagra Makeba was exiled from South Africa at the time, levitra vs viagra her songs having been banned since her 1963 testimony against Apartheid before the United Nations. Levitra vs viagra If you’d like to know more about Makeba and other dissident jazz divas of that time and place, levitra vs viagra visit the Afropop Worldwide Southern Africa Archive and scroll down to the section entitled “South African Jazz Revival.”

Levitra vs viagra If you want to understand the title of this post, levitra vs viagra you’ll have to listen to the song. Levitra vs viagra If you like the music, levitra vs viagra support the artist. Levitra vs viagra If you like the message, levitra vs viagra support the struggle.

Levitra vs viagra While the era of legal Apartheid is over, levitra vs viagra the struggles against injustice and for decent education continue in southern Africa. Levitra vs viagra David Johnson, levitra vs viagra a South African who, levitra vs viagra as a student, levitra vs viagra was inspired by the Soweto uprising to join the struggle against Apartheid, levitra vs viagra reports that the struggle for equality in education is not yet won. Levitra vs viagra In neighboring Zimbabwe, levitra vs viagra conditions are far worse. Levitra vs viagra Here, levitra vs viagra the Sokwanele Civic Action Support Group reports on the recent murder by police of Gift Tandare, levitra vs viagra the youth chairperson of the National Constitutional Assembly (NCA) local structure in a Harare suburb. Levitra vs viagra As in Soweto in 1976, levitra vs viagra the Zimbabwe police in April of this year shot live ammunition into a peaceful crowd of dissidents. Levitra vs viagra The best way to honor the spirit of the youth of Soweto, levitra vs viagra the authors of this article assert, levitra vs viagra is to stand in solidarity with the youth of Zimbabwe today.

Levitra vs viagra You don’t have to go to Africa to do something about racism in education. Levitra vs viagra Here in the USA, levitra vs viagra de facto Apartheid deprives many students of color of the education they need to pull themselves out of poverty and participate fully in the political life of their communities. Levitra vs viagra I teach at an historically black university to which students come from some of the most impoverished neighborhoods on the east coast. Levitra vs viagra Many students arrive unprepared for college even though they did well at the under-funded public schools they attended. Levitra vs viagra The realization can be painful. Levitra vs viagra

Levitra vs viagra I recall a moment last winter when, levitra vs viagra following a persuasive speech by a student against mandatory attendance policies, levitra vs viagra a freeform discussion of grievances broke out in one of my classes. Levitra vs viagra After getting some pent-up resentments out of their systems, levitra vs viagra the students began talking more reflectively about their frustrations. Levitra vs viagra Several reported being lost in classes in which they had expected, levitra vs viagra based on their high school grades, levitra vs viagra to do well. Levitra vs viagra Imagine coming to college thinking of yourself as a good student only to discover that you don’t have the skills to handle introductory math or first-year composition! One very smart and hardworking young woman captured it well when, levitra vs viagra struggling for words, levitra vs viagra she said, levitra vs viagra “I feel… tricked.

Levitra vs viagra Are the schools in your community betraying students in that way? What can you do about it? How are the schools in your community funded? Administered? Is the local school board selected or elected? Since the 1990s, levitra vs viagra Christian fundamentalists have made a concerted effort to use the inattention of most community members to get themselves onto school boards. Levitra vs viagra Have they taken over the school board in your community while you weren’t looking?

Levitra vs viagra What are the students in your community doing for themselves? How can you be their ally? In my hometown of Baltimore, levitra vs viagra high school students staged a three-day strike in March of last year and have launched a local Algebra Project. Levitra vs viagra You can read all about it in this issue of the Indypendent Reader.

  • Thank you for this important post.

    Living where I do I see some of this going on right here, in what should be a fairly affluent area, but there are these little clusters that are minority-majority and they are ignored and neglected. We have gone to our local schools to vote and have seen signs and lesson plans created by the teacher (for the students) on display with misspellings and incorrect grammar.

    One of the fallouts of “no student left behind” is that many schools have lowered standards in order to say that more students are meeting requirements and the result is a decreasing quality of education for everyone.

    This is compounded by other problems as well, like crime and gangs in these neighborhoods, so that sometimes basic concern for their own safety distracts students from learning. Also sometimes when the students see nothing around them except a violent world and a lot of shut doors they don’t see the value in education. If their parents also don’t put any emphasis on education, there is no reason for the children to even attend school.

    In my community a lot of information has come out about school board members essentially stealing from the schools, in the form of travel that really doesn’t benefit the school and getting personal expenses, like clothing, jewelry, and furniture paid by the school system. So some of the most underfunded schools also don’t get that meager funding as so much is stolen along the way. Of course I try to vote in a responsible manner, but politics is so twisted here, it’s hard to make much change.

    This problem is also compounded as the people who can afford to get out of this area in order to put their kids in better schools, do so. Usually we would call this “white flight” but now it’s substantially African American and Hispanic flight, as families from this area try to mortgage themselves into perpetual debt and work 2 jobs just to put their children into Virginia Schools or Anne Arundal schools, anything but here.

    Even so I amazed almost on a daily basis by college educated people who don’t seem to have much reading comprehension or much in the way of reasoning skills… I guess that’s an aside, but I have to feel our education system is failing on many fronts. Not to mention the way we fail to teach many people any compassion or the basic skills to solve conflicts and get along with others.

  • The Black Looks blog has got a moving and informative remembrance of 16 June 1976.

    Given how schools are funded (and not) — by property taxes, first and foremost — it is impossible not to conclude that there is a deliberate effort to keep the poorer people less well educated than the richer ones. It’s not that money alone makes for a good teacher, or a good pedagogy, or whatever, but let’s be real — it makes a HUGE difference….
