Education Is Personal




Education is such a personal subject very few people like to talk about it.  Especially in the African American community in Chicago. If someone has children or grandchildren in a school their focus is on their children. If a person does not have children in the public schools their focus is naturally not on public education. The crime and murders have been out of control in parts of Chicago for over 50 years. One way to fix that problem is improving the public schools for low income students.
