If I were mayor, I would direct whatever resources are available to communities in Miami-Dade where schools are low performing. The School Board, superintendent, principals and teachers can only do so much for our students. It’s time for the entire county to get involved in helping the families of our students.
It is true that “It takes a village to raise a child.” I have been an employee of Miami-Dade County Public Schools for more than 20 years and have seen how funding for education has been reduced while school districts are told, not asked, to do more.
It’s disgraceful that the education of our children is not one of the top priorities of our country.
