Williams controversy should not be racial

In recent weeks, we have read about the controversy at Annapolis High School involving its principal, Deborah Williams. The issue of race has been one of the recurring charges. Opponents of Mrs. Williams have said that race is not a factor. The majority of Principal Williams' opponents are white and the majority of her supporters are African-American.

I strongly support Principal Williams, who is seeking to close the disparate gap between students of color and whites. Do not allow the controversy at Annapolis High School to degenerate to racial division. If it does, it is our youth who will pay an awful price. Education is the root to everything.
