Parents either don’t care, are too busy, are unaware, or feel like their involvement won’t make a difference or even their options will be ignored by the school board. ALL of which are unacceptable and I for one am DETERMINED to bring about positive change when it comes to parental involvement.
Being a proactive parent has definitely taught me a lot about leadership. Running a school within my own home has taught me much about educational leadership. Being the wife of a United States Marine who is currently serving 18.5 years with absolute integrity, courage and professionalism has taught me volumes about leadership. As president, owner and operator of my Craven County small business, I have learned much about leadership. Volunteering through my local church has taught me much about leadership. I think John Quincy Adams summed it up well when he said, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a LEADER.”
b. A permanent set of rules to limit the power of the federal government?
It’s “b.” The Constitution is the law of the land and it provides for amendment by the sovereign states in convention or by the people. That’s all the adjustment for change that is needed. It’s designed in such a way as to limit the abuse by an over zealous government which is alive and well today.
I consider what the single most important issue there is, which for me is LIFE, and vote accordingly.
