Comments: Cosby saying the right thing

Poetic Justice! Cosby as Secretary of Education! Who would be better? I like it! And to his detractors: Dr. Cosby has aired "American" dirty laundry. of which "African American" is a part. With the clout of Sec of Ed office behind him perhaps African American "leaders" will pay attention.

Excellent idea Michael. I would love to see the way the Coz would handle teachers unions and the like. Would he have patience for failing schools? Would he push for vouchers? Many questions, but one can hardly doubt his qualifications or his commitment to education. And nothing makes me happier than having Bush hire more minorities to his staff. It seems to drive liberals and democrats insane when he bases his hiring decisions on peoples qualifications instead of the demographics.

Very interesting.....

I've been suggesting this for quite a while since the truth about Paige's stats at HISD came out.

Paige's PhD in Gymteacherology may not even have been earned.

This is not a bad idea. I think he needs some training in the public school system, but Dr. Cosby certainly has academic qualifications. As a Hispanic, I am all for ending this "1960's poor me syndrome" among Hispanics and Blacks. Social programs have proven to be devastating to our communities. The assumption that we are too stupid to take care of ourselves is insulting. I think that what Dr. Cosby is starting with his comments is "right on!". We are ultimately responsible for our own actions and raising our kids right IS OUR JOB and OUR RESPONSIBILITY.
