Something About Education, Transportation and Innovation

There are things that keep a community and our world moving. Education, transportation and innovation. When you fail to fund any of these three things then things come to a stand still. People need education to prepare them for the future to innovate and to solve the worlds problems.We rise and fall on the success of our students who will lead the way of the future.

Transportation leads to its own innovations and gets people to where they need to go for work among other things. I see a lot of places where those three things are bottled up in local, state and federal politics. Those three things should never be a political hot button but they are. When an entertainer gives $1 million to a local school system that tells you something.

It seems like the future of the world unfortunately is dependent on people who are making decisions that will have serious impact on the present and the future. Too bad these folks haven’t learned the lessons of the past and no road or innovation has made it possible to travel back in time so we can learn the hard lessons of generations that have come before.

Education is the most important weapon to change the world.

  1. I was really happy to read that Chance The Rapper did that. Chicago schools are really in trouble and I wish that there would be an easier way to help our failing schools and school systems.
