There is a proper way to educate and there is a proper way to govern, and they are both known. Today we do these things in a different way, which presents a serious and perhaps fatal problem for our country. But repair is possible.
Take education first. The word "education" comes from a Latin word meaning "to lead forth." And if you think about it, "forth" is a value-laden term. Which way is forth? The Bible tells us to "raise up a child in the way he should go." But which way should he go? How does one come to know the answer to that? After almost 14 years as a college president I'm an expert on young people between 18 and 22, and I can tell you that if you ask a young person today which way is the right way to go, more often than not he or she will answer: "It depends on which way you want to go." Young people today give that answer because they've been taught to give that answer. But it's the wrong answer, and the activity of getting from there to the right answer—the activity of coming to know which way is the right way—is education. Thus "to lead forth."

Hello. Don’t recognize me? That’s OK; I understand.
My name was Antonio West. I was the 13-month old child who was shot in the face at point blank range by two black teens, who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot.
I think my murder and my mommy’s wounding made the news for maybe a day, and then disappeared.
A Grand Jury of my mommy's peers from Brunswick, Georgia ruled the black teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty... too bad it was me who got the death sentence from my killers instead, because Mommy didn’t have the money they demanded.
