Education Panel: Audience/Community Questions:

  1. How can educations address the "culture" of the music, videos, etc., degradation that exist in many urban communities?
  2. Due to the fact that there are very few jobs and and post graduation opportunities for our children - what are we educating them to do?
  3. Do you think fighting in self defense deserves consequences such as suspension?
  4. How can someone outside of the community with no children be of service?
  5. How can we address the issues of the children who don't have active parents, parents who work long hours or the parents simply don't have the time?
  6. Why doesn't my school inform us about college?
  7. In order to effectively educate the children, we must have the parent and the community to buy in to the agenda. How you get the community and parents buy-in?
  8. Why doesn't my school have any clubs or extracurricular activities?
  9. Which is the best type of high school if you want a high demand job?
  10. How many graduates does this school have per year?
  11. How did you acquire a 4.4 GPA? That is pretty amazing.
  12. What are some ways that "the village" namely the church can assist the youth in striving towards excellence?
  13. What inspired you to start the mentor program S.O.A.R.S.?
  14. Based on the nation that "it takes a village" to raise and teach a child, what can be done and can we enhance non-parents to take an active role in the educational process in the school districts within their communities?
  15. Why doesn't the state provide inner city schools with up to date books and supplies?
  16. With such emphasis placed on state testing how do you avoid teachers neglecting low performing students because they might fail anyway?
  17. How do you plan on dealing with the lack of African History in the schools?
  18. Are the children well? Are the teachers really dedicating themselves to helping the children exceed beyond the norm? Can we as a community keep the children and teachers encouraged and inspired? How? When? Where?
