Black and white parents back Benz

Even as politically correct school board members trashed Churchill High School Principal Joan Benz for having the audacity to lament in writing that the small group of violent kids happen to be black, Dr. Benz is getting support from white and black parents alike.

"Leaders of the Montgomery school system quickly condemned the principal's statement as racially insensitive, even as some Churchill parents, black and white, rose to defend her as a caring educator who tripped over some ill-chosen words," the Washington Post reports.
