Stop The Crime And Violence In Chicago!



Every Chicago Public School student reading at grade level should;
·        Dramatically reduce the crime and violence in Chicago.
·        Dramatically increase the CPS high school graduation rate.
·        Dramatically increase the Chicago City Colleges graduation rate.
·        Dramatically increase the population of the city of Chicago.
·        Create more good paying jobs in the city of Chicago.

Send a letter or e-mail to Mayor Rahm Emanuel and CPS CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett urging them to insure that every CPS student reads at grade level!

Reading At Grade Level Must Be Paramount!




To Mayor Rahm Emanuel:

Mr. Mayor: 

You already know most Chicago Public Schools and Charter Schools in the African American community are up against a culture where education is not a top priority. So I will not waste your time bemoaning about the problem.

Here are a few suggestions to improve the Chicago Public Schools, thus improving Chicago.

·        Persuade TV and radio stations to air pro-education public service announcements every hour.
·        Developed a parenting seminar for all students CPS high school students.
·        Present different models of academic success to parents and students.
·        Set a goal and expectation that every student reads at grade level.

The public service announcements should inspire more parents, students, and concerned citizens to create a culture that values education.

The purpose of the parenting seminar is to persuade students to value education, and delay having children until they at least complete their post secondary education.

There are best practices of the top students and their parents.  Presenting different models of academic success to parents and students may inspire them to raise their academic expectations.

Every CPS student reading at grade level must be paramount!  Every student not reading at grade level should be tutored, inspired, and then awarded for reading accomplishments.  Also have all CPS students write their own short series, articles, and E-Book.   These writing assignments should not be judged or criticized!

Improving public education for low income African American students, and other CPS students is extremely complicated.   Mr. Mayor, I wish you success.

A Slave Mentality





Question: Why Do African American Have So Many Issues?

Short Answer: Mainly because we have a slave mentality.

Don't forget you must pitch the OLD black Male vs. the YOUNG black Male, and the YOUNG black Male against the OLD black male. You must use the DARK skin slaves vs. the LIGHT skin slaves, and the LIGHT skin slaves vs. the DARK skin slaves. You must use the FEMALE vs. the MALE. And the MALE vs. the FEMALE. You must also have you white servants and over- seers distrust all Blacks. But it is NECESSARY THAT YOUR SLAVES TRUST AND DEPEND ON US. THEY MUST LOVE, RESPECT AND TRUST ONLY US.

As Good As It Gets?






Is a school only as good as the students they get?

If all the teachers and staff Whitney Young Magnet High School replaced the teachers and staff of Paul Robeson High School how much would the students of Robeson High School improve?

Advice For Middle and High Schools Students

Advice For Middle and High Schools Students



It is better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared .
 Whitney Young Jr.
Thoughts have power; thoughts are energy. And you can make your world or break it by your own thinking.
Susan Taylor

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.
Colin Powell
You can't be successful all by yourself.  Other people make you successful.  That's why you have to focus on other people, not yourself.
Al Ries & Jack Trout: HORSE SENSE:

Everyone has a purpose in life . . . a unique gift or special talent to give to others. And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals.
Deepak Chopra

"It is not the brightest who succeed . . . Nor is success simply the sum of the decisions and efforts we make on our own behalf”.  It is, rather, a gift.  Outliers are those who have been given opportunities - and who have had the strength and presence of mind to seize them."
Malcolm Gladwell


10,000-Hour Rule, the key to success in
any field, is simply a matter of practicing
a specific task that can be accomplished
with 20 hours of work a week for
10 years.
Made popular in Malcolm Gladwell's book Outliers, the 10,000 hour rule was derived from a study by Anders Ericsson, a psychologist who researched the success of violinists at the Berlin Academy of Music.


Winners
Winners do the things they are suppose to do, when they are suppose to do them, whether they feel like it or not.
 
Losers
Losers would rather have their way and fail, than to do what is right and succeed.

Pay yourself first and save some money!
Investing just $50 a month consistently over 25 years grows to $47,868 (assuming an average annual return of 8%).
A few reasons why you should continue your formal education for as long as possible!
An associate college degree is better than a high school degree, and so on.
Is college worth the cost?    A must see video!
Half of Americans could not come up with 2,000 dollars in order to deal with a routine emergency
Fifty million Americans are poor and another 50 million have been characterized “near poor,” which means they can feel the awful flames of poverty licking at their heels. That’s almost a third of the entire U.S. population.
 
You have to let it all go, fear, doubt, and disbelief.   Free your mind!
