Monique Morris: Why Are Black Girls More Likely To Be Punished In School?

"John Henson Junior and welcome to another edition of in Black America on this week's program single rhythm dance the Blues Education for the Liberation of black and Brown girls with author. Dr Monique. W W Moore's in black America. Our research is showing and the research of others and and and other folks who have been engaged in this work both at the advocacy level and at the academic levels. They're finding that black girls are experiencing you know a form of adult education When they're in and out of schools Delta fixation is a term that has been deeply explored by the George Town Center on poverty and inequality that has that shows how adults are are reading the behaviors of black girls to be more adult like than their white peers. Which means that? They're seeing our girls as needing less protection less nurturing less comforting that they are believed to be more independent and to know more about adult subjects such as sex than their white counterparts. And all of this really Begins when black girls are five years old and it peaks when they're between the ages of ten and fourteen which is also when we see peaks in their contact with disciplinary actions in school in the follow up to accrue claim book push out Social Justice Scholar and author. Dr Monique W Moore's has pushed the envelope. Further and in writing or latest book singer Rhythm Dance of Blues. He traveled from Oakland to Ohio and from New York to Iowa City and beyond she described Kanner and love what it looks like to meet the complex needs of girls on the margin in doing so she also a collection of ideas from educators who are tuned to the patterns of Pain Rain and struggle. And who show how. Those working in schools can harness their wisdom to partner with students and help the girls they teach find value and joy in learning far too often these young ladies on given the benefit of the doubt many I misunderstood thereby putting him on the path to incarceration singer singer rhythm dance the blues a guide to move away from punishment trauma and discrimination towards safety justice and genuine community in our schools. US recently in Black America spoke with. Dr Moore's this is actually my fifth book. I did Street novel beautiful for words and then I also worked with Kemba Smith. It's on her. Biographer does right I do. I did read that highest Campbell. Not doing well from all I can see she is. She's threatening. It's it's wonderful to see we're particularly drew you to education. I started my life in education. I was teaching very young. And you know I have. I have sort of veered away from I'm teaching and moved into research and policy for a while Though never fully releasing education as an important focal point in my work and I started to talk more intensely about the the discipline disparities After seeing data that when showing that African American girls were experiencing exclusionary disciplined suspensions expulsions etc at higher rates than their white counterparts. And so oh I understand and have always understood education to be a critical protective factor against contact with the juvenile court or criminal legal system. It's one of the reasons I call it. Freedom Work and when I see these interruptions taking place and this criminalization occurring of our girls it was really important for me to be a part of a community to elevate the issue but also to examine some of the solutions to this crisis thus far what are some of the analysis. We've come up with on this journey. Well unfortunately currently what we've been finding is that black girls continue to be. The only group of girls who are over represented across the spectrum of discipline in schools and at every educational level will in their educational journey and so You know that has Continue to you know sort of lead our inquiry around how we interrupt these cycles else How we elevated in consciousness how we elevated in consciousness of those who are working in schools who have children in schools who are concerned about what goes on in schools but also you know in the course of having these conversations about the problem I have discovered a number of programs and strategies that have done tremendous work with are girls that have you know really discovered pathways in the schools outside of the schools and in partnership with schools to transform the conditions that are really at the root cause of much of the behavior that girls ended up in trouble for in schools? And so it's a tale of concern in terms of wanting to address a critical issue. That really should be at the forefront of folks minds but also I would say you know an inspiring tale of how when we understand. There's a problem and set our intentions to shift the outcomes. We actually actually do it. How did you come up with the title? So singer them dance the Blues Education for the Liberation of black and brown girls. I think the framework of it being You sort of rooted in the musical traditions and artistic traditions at the black community. You know sort of came. Organically to me I ride in the introduction about a grainy black and white video that I was watching a Billie holiday singing strange fruit and as I was discovering what was happening on the road and sort of interacting with with many black women and girls specifically in communities and and you know dozens of communities It occurred to me that obviously what we're experiencing is a form of the blues but that we shouldn't only see the blues as a limited. We shouldn't only limit the blues to entertainment or see it as a vessel for for the expression of pain. I felt that it was important in in observing some of the traditions rooted in the Blues and some of the practices in our own communities throughout up the country to recognize that the blues is a platform for truth telling that would then enable us to really seek and obtain the healing thing that is necessary for us to move forward in this work. You write about in the book that African Americans and and the teenage girl dizziness girls are struggling to realize it. True you a deputy as scholars making net point. What do you see? Some of the detriments is going on in between those four walls. Well our the research is showing and the research of other folks who've been engaged in this work you know both at the advocacy level and at the academic levels. They're finding that black girls are experiencing you know a form of adult education When they're in and out of schools Adult education is a term that has been deeply explored Lord by the Georgetown Center on poverty and inequality that has that shows how adults are reading the behaviors of black girls to be more adult like than their white peers. Which means that they're seeing our girls as needing less protection less nurturing less comforting that they are believed to be more independent to know more about adult built subjects such as sex than their white counterparts? And all of this really begins when black girls are five years old and it peaks when they're between the ages of ten and fourteen. which is it's also when we see peaks in their contact with disciplinary actions in schools? And so it's really important to understand that when we render. Our girls is more adult like than they actually are. Then we believe that. They're in greater control of their behaviors than they actually are developmentally and it just feeds into a cycle where are girls are perceived as defiant and Saffi and loud problematic or bad real words that we assigned to our young people in schools. Are Our girls especially disproportionately renders them vulnerable to being taken out of school. which then of course places them at risk of participating in underground economies he's and being in contact with the juvenile quarter criminal legal system so these are the cycles were trying to disrupt are the readings of black girl behaviors? The increasing ways in which Latina girls and indigenous girls are also being criminalised in schools and also the elements that we can put in place to structure true accountability ability and to really respond to much of what underlies the negative behavior which in most cases with our girls is a traumatic event. Or you know as a sort of set of conditions that present harm in their lives.

"We'll get to that a second so Moya's working for Microsoft and me, I'm now working for George Town at the same time. I have this one track mind because I'm in this multi program, and I am on the track for business school. So I am taking the G met multiple times. I don't think we'll go down that road today. It was much much money too much time. So yeah. But but also what was interesting about that is that I moved closer. And we saw each other less because I was studying for the G man every night after class. I forgot all about that. The frustrating time Moyal would go out on Friday nights. And just come over after because I was like Friday night. We're going to be like one of my main times study, and we see each other Saturday crazy because you know, the whole reason I'm used to see was worse to spend more time together in the g completely over my life, your workout though. Yeah. And then I start visiting schools. You know once you start applying to schools visit in schools beforehand, then you are plying. So you do in their whole draft after draft. It was a very stressful process when I look back at it. I'm really thankful that I got the we got through it because it was extremely stressful as a lot of work, but at the end of that tunnel of work stress, tears tears over those g Mets here's Moyo had felt the tears funny story too. So Royal is a make fun of him because he studied computer science. Inference that and nothing to do with most things. But whenever I'm struggling with something. I'm like come on. You you take. The science. So he also is really good at standardized tests. So he took the G ones blew it out the park, and that led me to believe that he could tutor me. Well, the first time we sat down I was like, oh, this is not gonna work because he would like calculate fifteen steps in his head. And I'll be still be on step to like way. We how'd you get that? So he did try to help me in the process y'all and support he just, you know, we have different different working styles. But we both have our strengths. And now we help each other. So it's good. Yes. Yes. So there's a point of all this in case, you're like, all right? You guys where are you still talking about what you did? So we'll get to the part lessen the reasons we're sharing this story is because these experiences that we went through have made us who we are both individually and as a couple, and I think, you know, in that will explain a lot about who we are. So finally get into Michigan. I had some reservations at first because of the distance. I was like oh, man. Can we do this? But I really love Michigan. So was like there's no way I wasn't going to go there because of a man. If it works out, then it's to be if we're able to do the distance and ended up it worked out. But it was stressful to write like what how do we survive that? We we tried to do what three weeks on knuckle more without seeing each other home, something like them. You know, a good thing about that time is like I think every three weeks or so we to travel and we would alternate it. So if I wear one cycle, then it was his turn to come to Michigan. And then and then, of course, we would have breaks like fall break. So whatever I didn't go on as many trips as some of my classmates like during fall breaks, I love getting home to my family. And my man I also learned that I'm not really big on group trips. You know, you're travelling styles. So that's tip for be school to right while I was in Michigan. You were starting to side hustle. Tell us about that process. How did you dart gin into abs-? What did you do? Anyone? I gained into a what stage did you leave? Okay. So one thing the really helped oh lot was misery at that point..

"But the defense is the difference for me and what they've done on the road down the stretch. Yes, you're twenty two and nine but in your last eleven games, you're five zero at home and your own six on the road. If you can't win a straight up road game against George Town against Saint Johns against Seton Hall against Xavier against Marquette. You're not a team I'm going back. Providence Butler and depaul here. I mean, not great by any means all of them around five hundred for the season seven eleven and conference play. Here in the big east any of the eight through ten seems to have a chance to spoil the party here at all and make a little bit of a run. Well, you know, the interesting thing about Butler is you'll look at Butler, and they're the number nine seed and a lot of times people often look at seeds and make their determination by the seeds. Well, I actually have Butler as the number five power rated team in the conference. They had couple close losses early. So you know, that that's one team that I look at they've had a horrible stretch down the road. But you know, they're a team that has only one. Three straight games once their first three games of the year. They beat Miami Detroit and Mississippi since that time Butler has not won three straight games. So that that scares me a little bit. Although the team I have I think there's value with where they are relative to the power rating the other problem with providence in Butler, the eight nine seed is in a scheduling spot, that's very disadvantageous. They're gonna play at seven pm on Wednesday. The winner of that plays Villanova at noon on Thursday. So the the eight and nine seat have to play the one seed twelve hours later where the seven ten seats. Saint John's doesn't have to play until seven pm..

"We're obviously it's getting pelted you've already had what two hundred people rescued and more waiting to be rescued. Yeah. And there's a guy there George Town who builds custom homes says he wanted to stay behind. So we'll get help is neighbors after it was done lives on some higher ground there. Yeah. He said, I think we kind of let our guards down. This was with good morning. America early today said in hindsight, yes, I would have probably gotten out of here. It's like a bomb has gone off here. Everything around us is underwater. I think we're not out of the woods by a long shot. Enlisted man. I guess the last thing you need is some goof, not on talk radio criticizing you. Now. I'm just bringing up the question. Didn't they all know because we heard them keep saying just because it's downgraded from a four to three two two. The amount of water that still the biggest issue. Yes. Tremendously big and tremendously wet if we remember. I mean, right that that doesn't sound. So silly now in the content and the grand scheme of things right because when you're talking about category one through five or whatever I mean, you're really looking at wind speeds not necessarily amount the amount of water that this thing is going to dump on region. And this storm is moving at last check what five miles an hour. As in the whole body of it is actually creeping along that much. Gump a ton of wire on you. Yes. And so yeah, you've got hundreds of water rescues underway right now. But maybe it's a jerk thing to even bring that up and criticize it all. Because if you're in that situation, and you're living in a place that's got the higher ground, and you're thinking, hey, I get help other people around here because at least I'm in this place. That's probably not going to be affected. I mean. Very admirable about that. Yeah. In that guy's particular case if he is saying, I'm here to help other people. That's why I'm staying behind that being said if everybody would leave when officials asked them to there would be nobody to help afterward you come back in to replace your stuff later, and he's saying, yeah, if I'd have known this. Did no days to get out. But that doesn't help does that help. But that's the exact the that was the temptation for me. I've thought about it a lot last year forgiving Harvey was going down. And you know, my my dad actually wound up going back into Houston. He was further up in east, Texas, right? Went back. And I'm like, okay. So you're gonna grab your pets and go, right? Well, now, we're going to stay back and protect the house. How exactly is that supposed to go down? When you've got a monster. Hurricane dumping tons and tons of water on you, not a whole lot. You can do a couple of days later flash forward. When my expert analysis was ignored. He winds up on the roof getting rescued by the national guard. Did you ever do the whole I told Giwa in the moment I really wanted to but he was trying to conserve power on his cell phone. There's a conversation for that down the road. And then of course, when you act when I went and visited Houston little while after they're all trying to clean up the house that's been gutted. And you know, trying to figure out how to get rid of the property all of that probably not the greatest time ever. Maybe. Now's a good time. Bullock, one thing is not like George is gonna hear us right now. Five hundred thousand without power. Right. Well, yeah. I don't think he's tuned into the show right now. That thing where you know, you're in other parts of the country going, jeez. They were talking about this all week. It's really good. You don't want anyone to lose their life. Get hurt anything else. So I mean, if only some of the news stations had sent out there. Anchors and reporters to actually report from within the storm before it made landfall, right? They did you have a whole montage montage of them of them. Once it makes landfall I'm saying God aid actually sent him out on a boat to demonstrate how powerful this storm is. It's a gigantic storm. You should have left when you had the chance. Yeah. We saw the image. But yes, there was there was the dazzling coverage today, of course. Okay. Inside. That.
