13 Reasons Why Good Education Should Be a # 1 Priority.

Thirteen Things about LibertyBelle

1. Children are the future of the world.
2. Today’s children are going to be taking care of “us” tomorrow.
3. The surest way out of poverty is education.
4. The strongest weapon against prejudice and racism is knowledge.
5. To understand the future, you must understand the past.
6. Who would you want running the world tomorrow, a kid who worked hard in school or one who sold dope on the streets?
7. If a kid has a good education, the chances he becomes a criminal are small.
8. The fastest road to world peace, is tolerance and understanding of other cultures.
9. School is not only a place of learning, but also a place to learn social skills. What is intellectual intelligence without emotional intelligence?
10. Creative skills are also learned in school; such as art, music, dancing, debating, drama and many of the hobbies people love to do and relax to in their spare time.
11. School could be the place you find your life-long friend.
12. Learning languages gives a better understanding of other cultures, especially when you understand their humor.
13. The best gift we can give our kids is a good education. It gives them the chance to wake up each day to a job and a life they love instead of a job that passes time.

I believe in education, but the surest way to not live in poverty (for children) is to have parents married to each other.
