We Can't Afford Ignorance (PUNNDIT) - WDRB 41 Louisville News

We Can't Afford Ignorance

Louisville placed 42nd and Lexington 24th in a recent survey of America's 75 most literate cities based on six key indicators.

In my experience, the genius of free public schools and free public libraries is that, done right, everyone has at least a shot at becoming literate. Unfortunately, some are fully prepared to renege on such public commitments; They're too expensive, they say.

But I am reminded of a button I used to wear that said: "If you think education is too expensive, try ignorance."

I'm Betty Baye...and that's my point of view.

Let us know what you think of Betty's point of view by leaving a video response.
