About the Nominee

Brief Comments - What other facts should we know about your nominee?
Ray provides a perspective that keeps people on their toes. Just when you think that you are comfortable after reading the news, you read Ray's commentary on it and realize that there were things you hadn't thought of. And better yet, things you SHOULD have thought of. He helps me to be a critical thinker and not believe everything that is put in front of me as truth. I wish he would write more but damn his full time job that gets in the way!!!!

About the Nominee

Brief Comments - What other facts should we know about your nominee?
Ray speaks for those who have no voice, for those who don't know how to reach a broader audience, or for those who can't speak. He speaks his truth to power with grace, and the commitment of his passion for equity in and quality of urban education for all kids shines through.
