An increasing number have begun questioning the wisdom of supporting:
(i) social policies rooted in low expectations and government dependency; (ii) economic and tax policies that stifle economic growth, job creation, personal savings and investment; and (iii) education policies that refuse to subject public schools to the competitive pressures of school choice, leaving parents of predominantly black students in failing schools without the choices enjoyed by middle and upper-class Americans. This is one of the stated positions of RBE. Education reform will happen when we demand that it happen. The problems of the public schools are bigger than the solutions presented by the education establishment. Its time to work on a political strategy.
