The youth of Memphis

[crowdsignal poll=0]

What is one area regarding the youth of Memphis do you feel needs the most attention? Me? I feel addressing the poor school system is essential. Why? Because so many of our kids come from homes that are less than ideal. Trauma takes place inside these homes, bullying and peer pressure take place outside the home. So many parents do not teach life skills to their children, so they succumb to peer pressure and join gangs. They feel their lives are not going anywhere anyway. If we can teach the teachers how to access each student using ACEs, get volunteers to help the teachers by offering free tutoring and teaching life skills to the students, we can lower the suicide rate, lower the crime rate among our youth, and increase college entrances. I strongly feel if a student understand they are intelligent, and they are not doomed to repeat the lifestyle of the parent, we can make a huge difference in each child’s life.
