I remember when I taught, every year at Christmas the kids would get so hyper. The teachers would say "The parents have so many activities this time of year it gets the kids so excited!" and the parents would say "The schools have so many activities this time of year it gets the kids so excited!"The truth is we were all doing it.
We are the adults, teachers , parents and the community. What kind of leadership do we want to offer our youth?
We don't have drugs and high drop out rates because it's 2011 or because of the media,we have it because of adult decisions we make for our youth. I hope you'll vote with me for a change on the Helena School Board to begin that journey toward more discipline and academic focus in our schools that will help our children build better futures.
