Alexander is the son of autoworkers (UAW) from Atlanta, Georgia. Though his mother finished high school, his father did not. However, his father was very hard on him as far as education was concerned. This is perhaps why he felt compelled to take advantage of all the education he could muster. Alexander is a proud product of Georgia public schools. Starting his career as a math teacher at an inner city public high school, Alexander learned valuable lessons from diverse institutions of higher learning. Alexander has strong convictions regarding educational opportunity as a necessary benefit of American democracy and productive citizenship. Below is some background information about Alexander.
