Dear Future President,
The issue of education is important because kids have to have education in order to succeed in the future.
The position on our education issue is to support common core and no child left. According to the Washington Post “The school district in Jennings has helped many students like Gwen. More students are finishing high school. The schools are getting better, too. Earlier, there were no music and dance classes. There was not enough money for them.” (https://newsela.com/articles/superintendent-poorschools/id/13796/) Support from school districts is good. Also, “The schools in Jennings are making a change. The schools do more than just teach. They also help poor kids who do not have enough food or a place to stay at night.” Helping poor students is important because they can do better in school. Also, “Anderson said that schools should help poor kids. She thinks this will help the kids do better in school.” Poor kids do not have money for expensive school things, so helping them will help them achieve what they want in school.
This issue is important in my life because I want be educated so in the future I can take care myself. Plus, other children would benefit in the learning environment.
In Gambia if you don’t have to pay the money to the school you will not go to school until you pay the money. You buy your own books, pen and pencil. Also we have to buy uniforms send to the tailor if the kids parent don’t have that money for the uniforms the children will never a attend to school. Some of the teachers are nice some of them are strict, the school is not fun and it’s not fair because teacher hit students. I am with people in my class and we do not have computers.
We need to have free education and improve public school because many people don’t have money for college.
