Education and Healthcare

Dear Friends,

Do you ever wonder why these topics never seem to have any forward progression.  For as long as I can remember they have always been hot topics during a political race.  Why are these things so hard to change or come to an agreement on?

What sparked this for me was watching the show "The Talk".  The discussion was on school systems and the movie "Waiting For Superman".  I am one of the fortunate ones to have a decent school system, however there are many that don't.  Another controversy on this topic was a woman who was sent to jail because she had put her child in another district that had a better quality school and more opportunity.  Reason for being arrested, she does not pay taxes for that district and had refused to pay additional taxes on top of what she was paying for her failing school.  I have yet to see the movie but definitely want to.  What are your thoughts...

Here is a link if you would like to donate to a school in need, you get to pick the class!

Also placing a link to the movie on my website if you would like to pre-order.  It will be released February 15, 2011.
