Barkley’s advice to students: Listen to your elders

    Former Philadelphia 76ers star Charles Barkley has one important piece of advice for students: listen to your elders.

    The NBA star this week made a visit to the Renaissance Academy in Phoenixville.

    The Daily Local News says Barkley was invited to speak to students at the school by an English as a second language instructor, who felt the basketball star demonstrates core values that are taught at the school.

    Barkely also encouraged students to pursue a college education.
