The welfare state in educational garb

So Chicago is opening a high school for black males.

Said Tim King, the founder of Urban Prep: "Clearly there is a high need for figuring out how to serve these kids academically."

Right. Just figure out how to serve 'em better (it's all schools's fault, dontcha know) and Urban Prep'll churn out Einsteins.

Here we are, a generation after Martin Luther King, Jr's murder, and we still have no permanent allergy to segregation. Rosa Parks, who deserves eternal rest, is now forced to spin in her grave.
