Dr. Ben Carson on the last debate was the only Presidential candidate to say “I stress the pediatric part of my career because the reason that I’ve gotten involved in this race is because I’m very concerned about the future of our children.” I believe that our children are our future and in this election cycle I feel that it’s not about what our next President is going to do for me but as what he/she is going to do for our children’s futures.
As I look at my own daughters, who have been back to school for 3 weeks and have had more days off than they had school days, I understand that because of scheduled holidays they need to have school closed. The future of my girls depends on the best education we are able to provide for them. I feel my girls are in a crucial part in their lives when it comes to education and this is a crossing point for them, My oldest is in high school and my youngest is in Jr. high school. Having so many days off in a 3 week period to me only slows them down and takes them out of rhythm.
I wonder if Education is on any of the Presidential candidates minds While we know that Dr. Ben Carson said that he is worried about our children’s futures, he did not elaborate on what worries him. I know that some schools in NYC are over crowded and are not staffed the way they would like, at times you have too many kids in one classroom and teachers try the best they can with our children. I also have to extend the blame to a lot of the parents who do not keep track of what their kids are learning or doing in school. Some parents do not even know that there are 35 students in their child’s classroom. I know it’s not easy for single mom’s or single dad’s to do this but the reality is that we all must make that sacrifice and take a few minutes each day an investigate what our kids are learning and doing in school.
My wife and I have always kept an open dialogue with our daughters when it comes to school. When we didn’t understand what type of homework they had, we just simply googled it. If that didn’t give us the answer we would go straight to the teacher and ask, when parents pick up their kids in school or at the after school program there is always a teacher or someone there who might help you. Learn not to be embarrassed and ask. Leave your ego at the door. My mother always used to tell me, that we learn something new every day.
The decisions we make in this and future election cycles are going to affect our children. It’s not about what they are going to do for us it’s about what they are going to do for our younger generations. We are either going to get them into a bigger deficit or balance things out for them. No matter how you vote, please try not to choose the person who is going to tell you how they are going to fill your pockets with gold, but vote for the person who has a legitimate plan for the future.
