Arne Duncan calls education a civil rights issue

While speaking at the annual Rainbow/PUSH Coalition convention, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan "the civil rights issue of our generation."

I'm not sure why that is, because no one is blocking the doors of schools preventing black children from entering.

However, as you'll see in a YouTube video I posted last month, the Democrats are preventing African-American kids in Washington DC from getting a better education.

Is education a civil right or is attending the public schools a right? If this is about public education then some people have it wrong. The right is about getting the best education possible. One can go to school and get an education, but it may not be the best possible education. I know this is all theory.
