About Charlotte Charlotte's Vision
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. America, this is our moment. For we have a choice in this country. Make America Great Again! I'm inspired by the love people have for their children and this country.
We need change. We may come from different places and have different stories, but we share common hopes, and one very American dream. Nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change. We are a people of improbable hope. The audacity of hope! In distilled form, though, the explanations of both the right and the left have become mirror images of each other. We need change. The audacity of hope! The audacity of hope! We are a people of improbable hope.
Education dollars should be redirected to give parents the right to send their children to the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice, and bring education supervision to local communities.
When I graduated from high school, there was an emphasis on vocational and technical education, and two- and four-year colleges were more affordable. Career and technical education is needed to provide a foundation of skills that enable high school students to be gainfully employed after graduation–either full-time or while continuing their education or training.
Shelby County, Tennessee has suffered
from our students graduating from the
University of Memphis, Rhodes, Christian
Brothers University, Lemoyne Owens and
other prominent colleges, and after
graduation, are forced to move to
another city in order to find
employment. When they move, parents are
separated from their children and future
grandchildren. Shelby County suffers as
a result of the brain drain. There is a
solution to this problem, but the
current leadership does not know or even
care to address it. As a mother and a
grandmother, I have seen and spoken to
parents who try to suppress their tears
when they resign themselves to the fact
that their college graduates must move
to another city and/or state in order to
find a job. I believe very
strongly that young people should
not be forced to leave their home towns,
but they should be allowed to choose
whether it is necessary to separate from
their families or not. I will work with
our legislators to ensure that Shelby
County is a place where our young
people's skills are needed, appreciated
Real education for real people
Nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for a better education for their children.
We are a people of remarkable hope. Yes, we can seize our future, and together we can Make America Great Again!
