How to Succeed in Education Without Really Studying, Part 2

The high and mighty rushed to the aid of dubiously degreed schools superintendent Roger Cuevas

Wilcox adds that he also got a "knock it off" message, indirectly, from H.T. Smith, the influential Miami attorney who counts board member Solomon Stinson as one of his clients.

Smith confirms he has been trying to broker a meeting among the leaders of PULSE, HOPE, church leaders in the black community, and school administrators. He calls himself "a friend of PULSE," but disagrees with Wilcox's call for Cuevas to step down. "I don't think it's the best strategy to ask for the death penalty, not if you want to have a long-term relationship," Smith says.

Wilcox has agreed to at least one of the Smith-organized meetings, but promises to maintain his aggressive posture. "We're going to keep pushing," Wilcox declares. "H.T. Smith doesn't control us."

Despite the chorus of support for Cuevas last week, activist Nathaniel Wilcox had sharp words for the superintendent
