Leftists across America are ignoring the success stories of black students in conservative states, and a commentator for the Washington Examiner is wondering why.

It is in an opinion piece by Corey Walker, who focuses on education among other topics in reporting, that the problem is raised: "Black students are thriving in red states and blue states fail them."

The article cites Mississippi and Texas successes.

In "deep-red Mississippi, America’s poorest state," reading achievement scores have soared in recent years, the report says.

That boost followed a decision to teach students using a phonics-based reading method, a "direct contrast to the 'whole word' method touted in liberal states. The state also dispatched coaches to work with teachers at schools with especially poor results," the report said.
