Charlie Langton spoke with Jalen Rose about a number of topics. Rose discussed his charter school, the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy, and talked about changing the culture of Detroit kids to help them care about a great education — to feel that they can be successful, productive adults. He talked about keeping kids from drugs, gangs, pregnancy, etc. Kids need to be exposed to positive things in their environment including a solid education with parents who care.
