“He met this guy while he was in Miland, who’s a doctor in ciriculum development for prisions. They’re developing a program and taking it to, you know, he’s already been to D.C. to try to get some funding, you know, to try and get this program off. He’s serious about the cognitive development of inmates,” said Cheeks.

    Well, Kwame can improve the prison system BY STAYING OUT OF IT.

    Besides didn’t he try to improve the government system in Detroit. This guy just moves from one con to another. Its all the same to him with a resume deep in the general huckstering of operations and processes.

    Don’t despair Kwame will soon try to get to you for “some funding”
