  • What is Decolonization?

Why Deecolonize Academy is Needed


To Resist the systematic criminalization of our Black & Brown Children: A study by the Black Organizing Project (BOP) found that black youth make up only 30.5% of the Oakland Unified school population, but account for 73% of Oakland School arrests. From 2010-2012, 85 students were arrested, and none of those were white, the study charges.
A 2007 study by the Advancement Project and the Power U Center for Social Change says that for every 100 students who were suspended, 15 were Black, 7.9 were American Indian, 6.8 were Latino and 4.8 were white.
- The same study reports that the U.S. spends almost $70 billion annually on incarceration, probation and parole, compared to a 21% increase in funding for higher education in the same 20-year span.
