Parent and taxpayer response

JUST SAY WHEN ...TO ANYONE SAYING YOU HAVE NO SAY IN YOUR CHILDREN'S EDUCATION. We are Citizens for Public School Education. We are Board Watchers. We want a Board of Education that follows the Law, because following the Law works for everyone. The purpose of this site is to help close the controversial Achievement Gap that is the subject in many educational arenas. Teachers are invaluable when dedicated individuals and are entrusted to encourage, nurture, and teach each child to achieve to the best of his/her individual abilities. Principals, Superintendents, Business Administrators, Support Staff, School Board Members, Attorneys and everyone else in the district must be dedicated to making certain that teachers have whatever they need in order to perform at their best. Teachers must be willing to go the extra mile like millions have done before them. This blog promotes an active, accurate & objective telling of history that includes ALL cultures and their literary, cultural and historical contributions to building America. We are Board Watchers.

African American Mother's Association: Induction Ceremony

The first order of business for this newly formed association
will be to induct new members.
Mother and Son at the Beach
I hereby induct into the African American Mother's Association
All white women with black children
Especially black sons.
To all helicopter Moms
You are hereby embraced into a culture of people who realize that their sons
like the great bald Eagle are an endangered species that warrants protection.
It worries you that the world
Will not see them as they see you, but as their father's folk and that they will not be safe.
Your children see you, love you and are very lucky to have you hover.
A word of advice, make larger circles.
It may NOT be runaway trains that you see.

Welcome to our world. We are one. We are called the village.
Welcome to the Mother's Association that produced men like, Benjamin Banneker,
Frederick Douglass, Meager Eavers, Adam Clayton Powell, Alex Haley, Alvin Ailey,
Langston Hughes, Malcolm X, John A. Williams, Martin Luther King Jr. and President Barak Obama to name a few..

Know that you are the greatest hero in the lives of your children.
We embrace you
As you renew your pledge to love, educate and protect your kids.
We open our hearts to you.
You are now officially a Black Mother..

This meeting is now adjourned.
