“There are a lot of kids out there who need help, who are getting a lot of negative reinforcement. And is there more that we can do to give them the sense that their country cares about them and values them and is willing to invest in them?” – President Obama, July 19, 2013

As Public school Districts throughout the United States continues to modify strict disciplinary policies in an effort to keep students in the classroom, We wanted to take this opportunity to Thank President Barack Obama for his wise leadership in drumming up support for the above intiative. For quite sometimes, We have been advocating for such positive steps because of the high suspension rate advanced illegally by previous regime here in Prince George’s County Public schools. (See point number 7 of the incoming top priorities). However, more still needs to be done especially in privately run charter schools throughout the country. Data realesed recently shows charter schools are expelling students at a vastly higher rate than the rest of the school districts across the United States at the moment and public money is being mismanaged in some areas at exposionary chunk.
As we have said before, leaders such as President Barack Obama are the ones who are helping move this country and the World into the future. We can make failing schools better but we can’t keep doing the same things over and over by not getting the right leadership on the ground. We cannot keep relying on teachers and schools to solve all the problems. We can do it if we change the focus and reward leaders with fire in the belly irrespective of their background. Let us get it right and support such leaders from the bottom up.
Bottom-up approaches offer great potential for any successful campaign and leadership.
