Solomon Walker’s formal education started and ended the day he walked miles to the nearest
school and was turned away at the door. As an adult, Solomon made sure that his children would have the education that he was denied. Solomon’s son, Ron, went on to become a teacher,
principal, and award-winning educator – and is the founder and Executive Director of
COSEBOC. In his new book, Solomon’s Plan: A Gift of Education from a Father to His Son, Ron
Walker reflects on the ways that education shaped his father’s life and his own.
