Black senator says 'public education is hurting our kids'

The Education Gadfly reports that South Carolina state Senator Robert Ford (D-Charleston) has
introduced a bill to give students tax credits or tuition grants. His rationale is who will benefit the most: poor African-American students who are stuck in failing schools. "Public education is hurting our kids," he explained. "All of us have been defending the system. It's time to stop. I'm not pussyfooting with this anymore."
