Great, American story. Businessman has a problem:
In hiring young people for his large private business, Bob Luddy of Raleigh, North Carolina, ran head-long into the problem shared by other employers — namely, that many potential employees with a public-school education did not have the elemental skills required to hold jobs, some unable to understand basic logic or even to read.
So Mr. Luddy decidee to do something about it. He, like Eva Moskowitz in New York City and others, didn't complain, he just fixed our education system, one school at a time.
