Advocate in Children

"...... all students must have the opportunity to learn and meet the same high standards if they are to access the knowledge and skills necessary in their post-school lives." (Common Core State Standards in Math) 

It is a voice of advocate like parents bringing up to the teacher about their concerns on their son's last math quiz.  Though both parents would work full time or juggle two jobs, advocates find the ways and time to communicate to the school.  They would also take advantage of the recent information technology to explore over advise they have been looking for.  Advocates care.  Children sense it. 

Educators and leaders in our country are trying to do similar in a large scale.  It is an urgent assignment that ALL students would be prepared to be responsible and productive citizens for their own life before flying away from their nest, the public education system.  Individual distinguished teachers understand it in depth all over the country.  So they deliver lessons every day with passion.  Children see it through their active engagement.

We need the efficient collaboration among all parties to be successful as an advocate for our children, our future, and our country.  Face it.  Realize it.  Take your part.  So you can be active on advocacy in education.  That makes you feel meaningful in the society you live in.  It leads toward our brightest future.
