Are public schools a bigger threat to black community than the KKK? - EAGnews.org :: Education Research, Reporting, Analysis and Commentary:

NEW YORK – A trio of African-American journalists agree: the teacher union-controlled public school system poses a greater threat to the black community than the Ku Klux Klan.
In recent written and broadcast comments, Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell and Juan Williams emphatically state that African-American children are being irreparably harmed by lousy inner-city schools.
“If I were the Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan and I wanted to sabotage any opportunity for black academic excellence, I could not think of a better means for doing so than the public education system in most of our cities,” said Walter Williams, a writer and economics professor, while guest hosting for Rush Limbaugh’s national radio program.
“Absolutely,” agreed Sowell, an economist and author, according to the Daily Caller. “We’ve reached a point where the Klan can’t do much to stop us (African-Americans) but our ‘friends’ can do a lot to stop us.”
Sowell was clearly referring to the teacher unions and other education apologists who defend the public school status quo. And the statistics back him up.
