Here Is Services
And I don’t think it should be viewed as controversial to say to a public school, if children are falling behind, here’s supplementary services to help that individual child catch up.
Our Nation’s Fabirc In Making Sure
One of the reasons I’ve come is to highlight this problem and say to our country: We have an interest in the health of these centers of excellence; it’s in the country’s interest to get beyond the debate of public/private, to recognize this is a critical national asset that provides a critical part of our nation’s fabric in making sure we’re a hopeful place.
His Whole Theory Of Life
My whole theory of life was we ought to be asking about results, not necessarily process.
There Is Actual Consequences
See, one of the — what’s very important to make sure that an accountability system works is there’s actual consequences and outlets.
And one of the outlets would be if you’re in a public school that won’t teach and won’t change, and you’re — qualify, here’s a scholarship for you to be able to have an additional opportunity.
And to me this is a good way to help strengthen the schools that I was talking about that are losing.
Faith-based schools can continue to serve inner-city children requires a — to see that that happens requires a commitment from the business community.
“Go-by”, AKA Model
In other words, good ideas can take hold. The job of this conference is to provide a kind of go-by for people who share a sense of concern about our nation’s future.
Down With Government Law
Citizens — you know, we’re a — we are a compassionate nation. What I see is America at its very best, which is these millions of acts of kindness and generosity that take place, and it doesn’t require a government law.
Ten years ago private donors gave approximately $15 million to the church in Memphis to help revive Catholic schools in the city’s poorest neighborhoods — assets exist — they’re worried about them going away, so rather than just watch schools close, somebody — individuals did something about it by putting up $15 million.
Offer Not Valid In Iraq
You’ve got to be a little worried in our society when somebody says, I don’t think I want to measure. That’s like saying, I don’t want to be held to account.
And I want to thank those who have put forth the money, and call on all citizens to find ways they can contribute with their hearts to help educational entrepreneurs succeed — is really what we’re talking about, isn’t it? Kind of innovation, they’re willing to challenge the status quo if it’s not working.
I Consider Yourself
I call it educational entrepreneurship — so I’d consider yourself entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs.
Here are some ways — I mean, these are levels of society that ought to all be involved, and hopefully out of this meeting, that there’s concrete action.
Um… Mexican Women Do Not Call Themselves “Mexicana”, Do They?
She is a — she was born in Mexico — Mexicana.
Chicago Ain’t All That
And they moved to Chicago, probably to try to realize a better life — I’m confident, to try to realize a better life.
What You Just Got
You either just got an A — or an F.
Neuters Poor Yadira
Someday no telling what Yadira’s going to be in life, but one thing is for certain: it’s going to be a productive citizen, and America will be better for it.
Not Them Go Away
And my hope is, is that we’re laying cornerstones for new schools here or revived schools; that we take the spirit of the Holy Father and extend it throughout the country, and work for excellence for every child; to set high standards, and when we find centers of excellence, not them go away, but to think of policy that will enable them to not only exist, not only survive, but to thrive.
