A video from the Dead Prez

My good friend and colleague who is a principal in the Bronx shared this song with me years ago. It is a great song, with an incredible critical message about urban schools, racism, and the quashing of possibility.

It's not an easy video to watch, especially if you have had fond memories of school. But it speaks an uncomfortable truth, particularly about urban schools. As we dig further, I'll share some research that has studied what Dead Prez talk about (but with much less profanity).
