The Cost of Freedom

At last year’s Republican National Convention Governor Mike Huckabee told this amazing story:

“On the first day of school in 2005, Martha Cothren, a teacher at Joe T. Robinson High School in Little Rock, was determined that her students would not take their education or their privilege as Americans for granted.
With the principal’s permission, she removed all the desks from her classroom.

The students entered the empty room and asked, “Mrs. Cothren, where are our desks?” “You get a desk when you tell me how you earn it,” she replied.
