Here is a video of a group of people who did not better themselves with education.
Dr. Elaine Richardson, aka Dr. E. is a Professor of Literacy Studies in the College of Education and Human Ecology at The Ohio State University. Dr. E is the driving force behind the OSU Hip Hop Litercies Conference. The premise of her memoir PHD to Ph.D is how education turned her life around.
I will keep it 100 percent honest. I have met and written about Dr. E. Like I said: Dr. Elaine Richardson is an accomplished and revered academic. So Before I read this excerpt; I had no idea that she had been in such a bad place.
