Dreams do come true! I so wanted to be in the audience for this one!!! I have been burning the midnight oil writing to the Oprah Show asking to be invited to this powerful event: the crisis in our schools. I am beyond excited to have been given this amazing opportunity to watch the new educational documentary “Waiting for Superman” at the HARPO studio on Thursday night and be a guest in the audience on the Friday morning live taping of the Oprah Show!!! This is an opportunity for us all to join the national conversation with practical solutions to for change in our current educational system. I believe that the only way we will ever change education is to empower and inspire the parents, kids and the teaching teachers to take back our educational system. It’s time to stop pointing fingers, no more bullying tactics, put the balance back between left and right and take action to make our schools better!
NBC is having an Educational Summit next week and will have opportunities for us all to be involved.
Here’s just one of my many wishes for education:
I would level the playing field and make cuts at the top tiers of education and develop the dream teaching team for each school, filled with passionate teachers and rich with specialty teachers and aids inside the classrooms. No more part time guidance counselors, or doing without art and music, putting the fitness back in gym, adding fun back into the system by empowering parents, kids and teachers to take back their schools and make it flourish within their communities!
What is your one wish for education?
