Estimated Available Funds:$27,000,000.

When we begin to concentrate on what children actually require to learn, a child centered, developmentally appropriate, experiential, arts based curriculum, delivered by knowledgeable and dedicated educators who believe that every child is gifted and talented and wonderfully capable of contributing to the success of America, in neighborhood schools that are safe and supported by every member of the school community, we will begin to see the educational success that is required to realize the American dream, freedom and justice for all.
Collecting data on our children will not guarantee their success but will guarantee the successful profits of the “hedgehogs” that seek to control the direction of education into their coffers.
Our children deserve an education that expects them to become engaged and involved citizens of these United States, leaders of the people, bringing peace to our nation and around the world.
Our children deserve an education that expects them to achieve their full potential in order to be proud Americans who earned the right to be the government, “the people” of the United States.
Our children deserve to live in “One Nation, Under God”.
