David Robinson took the words of many a disingenuous politician to heart and built a charter school to invest in the country's future. The Admiral founded the Carver Academy, a charter school in San Antonio, to correct what he calls "second class opportunities" for inner-city youth. We salute Robinson for trying to save the future of America, because we're in trouble if we have to trust this guy.
