Such is the crisis within our community I am convinced of the need for schools that meet the pedagogic needs of young black people. Such is the nature of this crisis that we lose to many of our young people to the criminal justice system, mental health institutions, murder and disability as victims of violent attacks. This is not just those who tragically die but those that are also maimed, disfigured and psychology destroyed by violence.
I want to respond to this crisis and I say education is the key. I have argued and you can Google my name for the establishment of ‘ black focused schools’. I am determined to deliver this important opportunity to establish an African Academy. This Academy should focus of providing education to those currently lounging in Pupil Referral Units, Young Offenders Units on probation or have otherwise dropped out of the public education system. In biblical terms these are ‘ the stones that the builder refused’ I believe like the parable ‘ they shall be the head cornerstone’.
If you are genuinely interested in supporting this sincere effort I am intending to have a founding conference on this issue next year to establish the critical project path, funding required and timescale for delivery. This project is open to anyone who shares the vision and has the skills to help deliver the vision. It is opportunity for those who have staying power and commitment to deliver this initiative. This is an opportunity to be involved in making history and support a community reeling from a devastating crisis.
I will be establishing a conference steering group to take this forward I will need your help to do this. Please send this information out worldwide and sign up here if you are tired of all the talk and want simply to do something.
I want to hold a conference that will set out what’s required to establish an African Academy as a beacon of academic excellence. The conference will set out what’s required and recruit a project steering group to bring to life the UK’s first school.
