This week on Basic Black: education in the news. We’ll look at the controversy over accusations of racism at Boston Latin School; also, a discussion on the persistent trend of racial disparities in discipline, starting with kindergartners; and finally, in his first State of the State address last month, Governor Baker called for a raise on the cap for charter schools, so we’ll discuss the pros and cons of a charter school education.
