If no child left behind, black faces on the first 48 look like mine
Some background information.
- The No Child Left Behind Act was brought in to assist disadvantaged kids at school not fall behind on their grades. In studies done on the act it was shown that students from minorities, such as African Americans would still fall behind.
- The First 48 TV program was scrutinised a few years ago about their episodes only including criminals that were African Americans. Note this is a real life homicide show.
Livadon is saying that because African American children are still falling behind at school, they’ll end up being the criminals that were seen in First 48 TV.
