I envision Mobile with the best school system in the State of Alabama. Education is the first step for students to gain the knowledge, critical thinking, empowerment and skills they need to make the world a better place. We must set education as our highest priority. Our mission is to transform the lives of every student who attend Mobile County Public Schools, so they can reach their full educational potential regardless of the color of their skin, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, citizenship status, family income and accessible to everyone, including those with disabilities. All Mobile County Public Schools must undergo a vetting process designed to ensure that their curriculum is sufficiently rigorous, unyielding and demanding the best from each student with an education they deserve, and opportunity to earn a post-secondary certificate, credential, or college degree with the opportunity to enter a meaningful, self-sustaining job in early adulthood. Empowering them to face the challenges of an interconnected world of languages enabling them to express their thoughts, gives them the mindset to engage in productive conversations with the ability to speak fluently and coherently on a more individualized pace to compete globally, with ever-expanding technology. Learning Today; Leading Tomorrow.
The fundamental dilemma remains. Why are more people moving out of Mobile County and the City of Mobile than any other county in Alabama. Mobile is no longer the second largest City in the State of Alabama. The new US Census Bureau numbers show Mobile has fallen to fourth place among the cities of Alabama, the survey show 1,500 people per year moved from Mobile to Baldwin County, one of the fastest growing counties in the state and the reason is education. We must compare both school systems uniquely. School districts should ensure that teachers compensation is not based on student performance or test scores. Compensation should be similar to that of other professions requiring the same level of education and training in their field of expertise. This is, to put it simply, Teachers should be given the opportunity to demonstrate and provide evidence of every level of their education, from training to skills in communication is a huge part of teaching, gradual imparting knowledge over a long period of time and their enthusiasm is infections. Teaching students not to be afraid of making mistakes. Honesty is the fastest way to prevent a mistake from turning into failure, so making mistakes is a normal part of the learning process to cope with failure as well as success.
I continue to support Mobile County Public Schools Superintendent Chresal D. Threadgill and his brilliant team, noting the increase of fully accredited growth throughout the school system, since becoming Superintendent in 2018. I believe in the expansion of the curriculum regarding our Spanish heritage. Language acquisition experts have established the best starting point, It's never to early to begin learning a language. Teaching them Spanish alongside English opens their minds early to explore different cultures by taking advantage of the critical time in development of early language skills will also improve their desire and ability to read. 2. pre-early language-literacy reading, writing, and reading comprehension skills. 3. Financial literacy the ability to understand and effectively use various financial skills, including personal financial management, budgeting, and investing. (Financial literacy is not taught in schools. Design on purpose, for a purpose.) and 4. Post-graduate preparedness. These four components I will advocate to ensure that we are preparing them for success in college, career and life, by supporting our children from CRADLE 2 CAREER.
