It’s been months since LaVar Ball made his ludicrous claims about beating Michael Jordan one-on-one, but up to this point the NBA legend hasn’t responded. On Monday at Michael Jordan Flight School, the GOAT answered.
As it is, teachers do not make big bucks, so the financial burden should not fall on their wallets. Yes, it should partially fall on the districts. But in underfunded schools in poor areas, schools would still be cash-strapped and prevented from providing the best education possible. Therefore, tax dollars must be invested in areas that will enable individuals to thrive, which breeds better citizens, reduces crime and lowers incarceration rates.

That the state of California is spending $11.4 billion on the prison system, while teachers nationwide are spending a collective $1.6 billion annually to provide supplies for their students, speaks volumes about our society’s priorities and motivations.

The United States of America is supposed to be a world leader on issues of human rights and an exemplar for democracy and invention. Yet, this country continually denies opportunity and education from the poor and people of color, which keeps the criminal-justice system a burgeoning business.
Not only is the criminal-justice system deeply flawed, the entire social structure — mired in systemic racism — is ingloriously vitiated. Until elected officials and the voters who put them in office can accept that each citizen’s success improves the nation overall, the problems will remain. Sadly, bigotry and racism prevent many from acknowledging this truth let alone accepting it.
