Recently you may have read about the “Milk Party”. This is a movement to make children our top priority at the local and state level. This sounds so familiar to the “Champion Parenting” movement I have been advocating for sometime now. Finally, attention is being given to what really matters. And that is our children!
Our children deserve to have an opportunity to succeed in school and in life. But it will take the continued efforts of a team approach and our state leaders in Florida, to see to it that the established goals of this movement are accomplished.
I recently issued a crucial message to parents to reinvest and recommit to keeping education the number one priority. Now is our chance to see to it that children become our priority!
This movement champions basic goals such as:
Supporting better parenting
Improving children’s health care, screening and treating special needs
Improving pre-school education
Enhancing mentoring programs
This courageous call to all Floridians, is being led by David Lawrence,
a former publisher of the Miami Herald, who believes as I do, that by investing
in our children’s education and well-being, we are helping to secure their economic future!
Get involved and help keep children our number one priority!
