Today is the eve of the Primary Election. To tell you that the campaign process has been an education itself would be an understatement. There is so much to be done in District 2 and with all public schools. There is a correlation between the lack of education and the crime in our community but all is not lost if we work together for the betterment of the collective. I am motivated by the number of individuals who want to do more for our children and who are truly grassroots people.
Education: The lynchpin for the survival and progress of School Board District 2
As I have traveled throughout the District, I have seen children in families that are barely surviving. The adults want and need jobs. To add the vestiges of crime to that mix leaves us with children who are not prepared and not focused when they come to school. Once again, we cannot simply throw our hands in the air and declare the situation hopeless. We must insist our leaders work to provide jobs for the people in District 2. We must also revive the strong sense of community of District 2 that is all but lost in most of our neighborhoods. Do you remember when your teacher, principal, doctor and other professionals lived in your neighborhood? Let's make sure our school leaders and staff are connected to our community. Our kids are watching; let's not continue to fail them.
