My first exposure to Dr. Ben Carson was as Commencement speaker at R.P.I. in Troy, NY in May, 2003. I knew nothing about him until that day and have been following him ever since. He made so much sense. He is faith filled and did not hesitate to share that with the audience. At the time, I thought I wonder how the PC crowd is responding to what he is saying.
The entire problem in education is a hydra. There is no easy solution and money definitely isn't it. Once women were able to enter fields where once they had only limited access, e.g., medicine, law, business, many bright and talented women no longer entered the field.
School choice would certainly help children escape the hell of our union controlled inner city schools.
