Education and Community are my Passions

Schools, parents, and the community should work together to promote learning of all students. When schools actively involve parents and engage community resources they are able to respond more effectively to the needs of students. A School are commonly built as a part of housing developments to create community. You can be involved whether you have kids in school or not. A Family and community involvements foster partnerships among schools, family, community groups, and individuals. They help children and youth develop.

Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education are more likely to:

  • Adapt well to school
  • Positively impacts academic achievement
  • Complete homework more consistently
  • Earn higher grades and test scores
  • Graduate and go on to college
  • Have better social skills
  • Reduces school suspension rates
  • Have better relationships with their parents
  • Have higher self-esteem
  • Improves school-related behaviors

When I was a kid, I remember clearly my parents voting in every election. What I don’t remember is my parents talking about which candidate they supported. In fact, this election cycle my mom said she had voted for who I suggested but didn’t know if my dad had or not.  “Why?”  Because it used to be considered impolite to ask or even discuss for whom you voted. Your vote was your vote and it was customary to keep it private.

What happened to the good ole days of decorum and respect for one another?  I’m not saying that everyone should keep their vote private. What I long for is respect for one another, open-mindedness, less judgement and vitriol spewed. I get the frustration of the last decade. After all, I was part of the tea party movement. As conservatives, we were tired of our conservative ideas, policies and principles being drug through the mud, misrepresented as uncaring, selfish and only for the rich. So, we gathered, rallied and gave one another the courage to stand up to the left and declare our truths.

We have a small favor to ask. More people are reading and supporting our independent reporting than ever before. And unlike many news organizations, we have chosen an approach that allows us to keep our information accessible to all, regardless of where they live or what they can afford.

The Retro Conservative is editorially independent, meaning we set our own agenda. Our information is free from commercial bias and not influenced by owners, politicians, lobbyists or shareholders. No one edits our editors. No one steers our opinion. This is important as it enables us to give a voice to those less heard. It allows us to challenge and suggest accountability to the system. It’s what makes us different from so many others in the media, at a time when factual, honest information is critical and seems to be in short supply.

Every contribution we receive from readers and supporters like you big or small goes directly into funding to get you the information you need and deserve. This support enables us to keep working as we do €“ but we must maintain and build on it for every year to come. Please support The Retro Conservative for as little as $1. It only takes a minute.
