Following outrage from Alabama Democratic leaders and organizations over his comments about failing inner-city schools, U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville clarified his remarks while doubling down on his original point.
“The COVID really brought it out about how bad our schools are and how bad our teachers are in the inner cities,” Tuberville said. “Most of them in inner cities; I don’t know how they got degrees, to be honest with you. I don’t know whether they can read and write.”
