Moreover, when all students succeed they will become citizens who are able to make realistic and responsible judgments regarding our political parties and candidates. Is it any wonder that those who have been branded failures in education have rejected the institutions and elitists who branded them? When the electorate is informed and engaged, we will not be fooled by con men and pretenders.
Who knows? We may finally reject the politics of cynicism, division and derision. We may finally elect representatives whose ultimate motive is to improve the lives of all Americans rather than to enrich themselves and their corporate masters.
