Education Is The Key

Back to school time is almost here....and parents feel free to start doing cartwheels:-)....as President Barack Obama and Education Secretary Arne Duncan( a guest this week on the TJMS) are among some high-powered speakers addressing the National Urban Leage and bringing some big news about 19 finalists in the administration' s Race To The Top...where the state of North Carolina is in the running as one of those finalists...yeah!! This initiative, among others, is part of the administration's plan to reform public education in America in lieu of the very ineffective No Child Left Behind program under President Bush.

As a parent, teacher or retired teacher what can we as families and communities do to not only continue to encourage our kids about the importance of a good education but one that's on equal footing so ALL children have an opportunity to receive a quality education!

EDUCATION IS THE KEY. STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT THE SCHOOLS AND GET INVOLVED. WHAT DO YOU DO TO IMPROVE THEM? THERE'S MORE TO IT THAN BUYING A PAIR OF SNEAKERS AND SENDING YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL. SCHOOLS ARE ONLY AS GOOD AS PARENTS MAKE THEM. PARENTS CAN GIVEA FEW HOURS A MONTH BY HELPING OUT AT SCHOOL. I KNOW YOU WORK. I DID TOO WHILE RAISING MY 2; BUT I TOOK VACATION TIME AND GOT INVOLVED AND BECAUSE PTA PRESIDENT AT MY DAUGHTER'S ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. IT'S CALLED RESPONSIBILITY TO YOUR CHILD!
