How politics CAN work in education

Providence Rhode Island has seen some dramatic things happen in the past few months. However, this video shows how, from the leadership of a politician, an entire community can move toward effective growth for all students.

I noticed the tone of speech in this video, how everyone speaks inclusively about this program’s impact to their children’s overall well being and not simply to their “academic achievement.”

I appreciate this video for giving an example of how a community can work together from politicians, to community services, to schools, and in the home. Do you feel that this could work in your community? Why or why not? What do you feel your role could be in getting a program like this started?

Be heard and Be empowered. Thanks

Mr. E! The Motivator!
