We must provide support and appreciation to our teachers so we can retain our quality educators. Teachers are crucial to our children’s success and we need to support them. Public funding and other resources spent in the classroom need to include “those who partner with us to help develop our children every single day”.
We must encourage parental input. We need to build trust and a partnership with them. Parents have a right to be heard, respected and have a say in their child’s education. We are in this together!
We must help our children find all career paths that will provide short- and long-term prosperity. Our schools should offer two career directions: college degrees and vocational/trades. A 4-year degree may be suited to many students but we need to also offer vocational training and apprenticeship programs for those interested in a hands-on learning experience.
