I don't think I have ever heard of this kind of moxie spring from a valedictorian before. Not in my time, anyway. Certainly I have never been so moved by the courage of Erica Goldson, Valedictorian . Education got the royal grilling it deserves and I hope to everything good in this world that she is allowed to become the leader that she obviously is. We would all be better for it. I was in tears by the end of the speech and my heart was full of hope in the youth of America today. It is an inspiring 10 minutes I hope you give it a go. Especially if you are in the education system either as a student or as an educator.
