Bonus Quote of the Day: Thomas Sowell on the poverty of low expectations


“If you want to see the poor remain poor, generation after generation, just keep the standards low in their schoold and make excuses for their academic shortcomings and personal misbehaviour. But please don’t congratulate yourself on your compassion.”
~ Thomas Sowell
