LARRY ELDER on RACE in EDUCATION

Larry Elder has written one of the most blunt columns about race in education I've ever read, titled An Asian student confesses -- 'we work harder'. He really "stirs the melting pot," so to speak.

The larger point I see is that culture cannot supplant education. The multicultural movement, along with the liberalization of "mainstream" American culture has impeded education in this country for too many years to be easily reversed. Any statistical analysis will prove this conclusion, though it sounds like an opinion. Read Mr. Elder's piece, and decide for yourself.
