    The foundation of the current public education system is outdated and is long overdue for progressive change. The inclusion of curriculum/courses, which studies have found to have significant outcome on student success, warrants the attention and approval of the Coachella policy makers (i.e., the Board). Such approval will lend the opportunity to validate what has been shown to be student success effective at school districts and post-secondary institutions. Progressive leadership will make necessary and sound decisions.


    Peace,

    When students see themselves in a positive light ~ in their books, classrooms, communities ~ they become active participants in their learning and create a democratic society. All students deserve to be seen and heard.
