Speech production and Linguistics Speech production is a multi-step process by which thoughts are generated into spoken utterances. Production involves the selection of appropriate words and the appropriate form of those words from the lexicon and morphology, and the organization of those words through the syntax. Then, the phonetic properties of the words are retrieved and the sentence is uttered through the articulations associated with those phonetic properties. Speech sounds are categorized by manner of articulation and place of articulation.
Black males in America have been cast in a light far too negative for their actual contributions to family, community, democracy, economy, thought leadership and country.
There are over two million Black male college graduates and over one million enrolled in college today. Our data indicates that, once again, of the 48 states where data was collected, in 35 states and the District of Columbia, Black males remain at the bottom of four-year high school graduation rates.
Latino males were at the bottom in 13 states. This fact, once again, provides clear evidence of a systemic problem impacting Black males rather than a problem with Black males. Since Black lives continue to matter to us, this edition of the Schott 50 State Report on Public Education and Black Males is intended to again alert the nation to the serious reality of a quieter danger that does not instantly end young lives, but creates an all but insurmountable chasm of denied opportunities that consigns them to limited chances to succeed in life.
The failure to close the opportunity gap, whether at the national, state or local level, not only deprives all of us, our communities and our nation of the talents and potential contributions that these young people have proven they can make and would likely replicate, but also constitutes a grave injustice.
Inthe Schott Foundation reported that the national graduation rate for Black males was 51 percent. When compared with our current estimate of 59 percent, this indicates an increase in the Black male graduation rate nationally.
It is important to note, however, that in a one-time federal data release, the U.
Department of Education reported the Black male graduation rate at 61 percent, which would indicate a decrease when compared with our estimate. This variance underscores the necessity for consistent annual federal, state, and local reporting of these data disaggregated by race and gender.
We measure what matters, and because Black lives matter, the regular reporting of these data points matters. Nonetheless, the decrease from 61 percent to 59 percent shows a need for more progress in increasing the Black male graduation rates in states and districts across the country.
The graduation gap between Black and White males has widened, increasing from 19 percentage points in school year to 21 percentage points in Black males continue to be both pushed out and locked out of opportunities for academic achievement, including notable disparities in their enrollment in Advanced Placement courses and participation in Gifted and Talented programming.
Furthermore, Black students were more likely to be classified as students with disabilities and were more likely to be suspended or expelled from school. These trends persisted at the national level as well as when analyzing data for individual states.
Education is a public good and an essential underpinning of our democracy. Our public education system remains the best vehicle and platform to deliver many of the supports necessary to break the intergenerational cycle of poverty.
Positioning young people to secure a high school diploma, which prepares them for postsecondary training and education, creates a clear pathway out of poverty.
They matter because they are significant to families, communities and our country. More importantly, they matter because they are a part of our interconnected humanity.
As such, we cannot allow these racial and gender disparities to persist.According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking.
Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that seem right?
That means to the average person, if you have to go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.

The response variable was fear of public speaking and the explanatory variables were sex, age, field of undergraduate study, influence of voice on fear of speaking, self-perception of voice, and participation in activities involving speaking to an audience.
While the survey touches on a range of issues, including the price of curricular materials and presidents’ preparation for their jobs (more on those later), most of the questions and answers explore two major issues: the political and public opinion landscape for higher education, and campus finances.
Public speaking anxiety (PSA) is the fear experienced by a person when delivering (or preparing to deliver) a speech to an audience.
Public speaking anxiety is sometimes referred to as stage fright or communication apprehension.
