Letters to the Editor

Enlightened educator

Mega kudos to Raymond Burse, the president of Kentucky State University. Finally an educator who truly believes in making the college experience better for everyone. He gave $90,000 of his own salary to raise the minimum wage of 24 university employees. What an example for his students. That is true leadership to the highest definition of the word.

I challenge all university presidents to do the same, and I can guarantee none will. Can you tell that I am wholeheartedly against the Board of Education because it is a rigged Ponzi scheme — very heavily weighted at the top and way too political for the most seasoned politician? But that’s a different editorial.

Dr. Burse you are truly a breath of fresh air.
