Seattle Central instructor appears on MSNBC

Daudi Abe, Ph.D., a Humanities instructor at Seattle Central, appeared on MSNBC to discuss school discipline. The Obama Administration recently went on record as saying school discipline is often too harsh, especially among African-American students, and Dr. Abe provided expert commentary on the issue.

The dissertation he wrote for his doctorate, earned at the University of Washington, focused on nontraditional instructional methods and the reduction of classroom discipline for African American students. He found that personal relationships between teachers and students are the biggest factor in student success.

Dr. Abe is also an author who recently published “6 ‘N the Morning,” a book that examines the West Coast hip-hop culture in the late eighties and early nineties.
