Equal Educational Opportunities for all Children

Equal educational opportunities are vital for kids to do well in life.  Success is available to everyone but it takes hard work, and the support of family, friends, and especially teachers.  Always trust that with hard work you can accomplish so much in life.

Few would question the importance of education for children. Yet too many children are not given the educational opportunities they need, which can be a determining factor in their chances for success in life.   This problem is more pervasive among low-income communities.

Aparna Kumar is a major proponent of making sure the national budget is providing equal educational opportunities for all children. The billions of dollars she suggests would cover children from preschool all the way through high school as well as special education and early intervention.

Are children being given proper education that will lead to having success in life?

Part of the inspiration for her plan comes from President Obama’s final State of the Union address where he proclaimed, “We must face the future with confidence.”   It is hard to be confident of a future where children are simply not receiving the education they need for success nor the support they need when dealing with failures they may face in life.

The President’s 2017 budget request for education will assist in supplying states, districts, and communities with the required resources to support excellence and equal education for all students.
