State Sen. John Eichelberger a Republican chairman of the Education Committee is under fire for comments suggesting that minority students in inner city public schools struggling to succeed in college, should instead be encouraged to pursue vocational careers. His remarks drew fire from Democratic colleagues, calling them demeaning and alarming for someone with influence over educational policies for the state. Eichelberger says he blames failing urban school systems, not their students' skin color for why graduates falter in college.
