  1. So who in the Bradley Foundation are teachers in public schools? Which of you have taught in schools like MPS? How many of you have degrees in education? Tell me specifically how you reach all the learning styles needed to reach as many children as possible. Public schools have always had their doors open to all no matter what race, creed or learning style. The American Dream has always meant a better life for our children through education.

Remember it says we the people, all are created equal. Martin Luther King Jr. gave up his life for our country, especially the children. He moved our country forward. Bradley Foundation you are moving our country backwards. You need to read his inspiring words. As an American we should move forward for all children, not the chosen few. I would like to remind you all the children are watching, and we better be looking at them. Are you?
