Great speech by our President on education. He recently told Essence that education is the most important issue in the black community. While many students return to school this week, many will not. The drop out rates in the black community and many cities is horrible. We all must work together to make sure that students have the desire to learn and that school have the resources to feed that desire. Work with students, volunteer at schools, become a teacher, push congress to adequately fund our schools. Here’s a video I made with students who dropped out and returned to school about the reasons why many inner-city students drop out of high school.
