Paladino just wants to improve schools

Rod Watson’s column regarding Carl Paladino being a School Board candidate makes a lot of inferences that Paladino is anti-African-Americans due to his emails. The broader picture here is that Paladino sees there is a dysfunctional School Board that needs new blood. The schools are having serious problems with graduation rates and kids who fail to attend school at all. He is trying to turn this around. There is no financial incentive for him to do this – he merely wants to bring change. Therefore, we don’t need this Paladino-bashing rhetoric to anger people; we have enough anger of people to go around.
