Pulitzer prize winning columnist Leonard Pitts has written about American politics, culture and race relations for over thirty years and is one of the most popular columnists in America today. He’s in Charlotte to talk about one of his passions, education reform. But first he sits down with us to talk about everything on his mind, including his first effort as a novelist.

  1. We will never fix our education problems until we start to value teaching and treat teachers with respect. Young people studying to be teachers have told me that all they ever hear about this career choice is that they won’t make any money. If we understood the importance of education and good teachers people would be praising and thanking them for choosing this choice, not deriding it.

    In many other countries teaching is a revered profession, even though teachers never make as much money as other professionals. Those countries attract many men to teaching, even in early elementary grades.

    Teaching is a calling and we should encourage our best and brightest to choose it instead of looking for the most lucrative profession.

  2. Pitts is a racist plain and simple.
