I'm a parent, and I would love to see good quality schools everywhere. Not just the wealthy neighborhoods. Seems like we've reached a point in this country where schools in lower income areas have bad reputations. We bought a home in an affordable area, but are sending our daughter to a private school. Would love to live where the good schools are, but can't afford the homes (at least $750,000 in Montgomery County, MD).
I am Benita Rice and I am in the start-up phase of implementing a youth outreach program at my church - Hyde Park Seventh day Adventist Church in Chicago. This is a youth led program and would include after school tutoring, arts and youth leadership program. I am very interested in the walking bus program and hope to begin with the implementation of this program. Thanks for sharing today's session.
