When education is attacked
and the level of educational
service and funding is declining
this should be a wakeup
call for the community to join
in a unified effort to strengthen
the collective resources and

provide support to the educational

When libraries are losing funding and vital access
to knowledge is denied communities start to decline on an
intellectual level that ultimately affects personal
perceptions of the value for growth and brings about lower
self esteem and psychological challenges.
Rally for public libraries:
Rally Public Libraries
When education
that provides skills to allow people to compete in a global
economy looses in legislative session the future ability to
infuse American workers to effectively compete in jobs that
require future skill sets infused in Mathematics, Science,
Technology and Literacy (reading and comprehension)
is threatened.

Schools now face budget cuts that students will feel years
to come, if America were a third world country we would
be in political dissention, social unrest and lower than we
are now when compared globally with other countries.

Florida is losing its competitive edge because of the decline
in basic skills that cannot be overlooked in the continued
advance in higher learning. The basic foundation of education
leads to higher educational accomplishment and a continued
desire to learn by members of the community. In order to
Transform our schools for a progressive and vibrant future
the community should embrace and support progressive
organizations that seek to aid students and families.

The "ONE by ONE. Transforming Our Future Together"
campaign seeks to infuse energy, accountability and
responsibility into an educational campaign that excites
parents about the educational process. Through the
One by One campaign, "it is our goal to see the entire
Jacksonville community mobilized, unified, and empowered
with an action plan to strengthen our communities,
our schools, and act on behalf of our students."

During times of economic stress, political change
dialogue is needed to "educate" the public what direction
is needed to address and eliminate the challenges we
face that try to divide us and challenge our collective
strength. Education is a key element that provides the
necessary skill set to bring knowledge workers together
for collaborative opportunities.

The best resource a society has is the education
of its youth.

Groups such as the Public Education Fund are, "
recognizing that Duval County is at a critical moment
for improving public education, the Jacksonville Public
Education Fund launches the ONE by ONE campaign
to unite the community behind a common vision to
ensure that all students graduate from high school
ready for college and the workforce." What better way
to empower our community and continue to prepare
our youth as participants in global markets. The saying,
It takes a community to raise leaders, says a lot for
the accountability of every citizen to be concerned
about the educational success of all youth. It does not
matter what community, it does not matter what
neighborhood or gated entrance ALL of Jacksonville
should be concerned.

Our youth can no longer be containers filled up with
facts, figures and statistics; our youth must be
Knowledge Managers. Managers of information, using
information to accomplish goals and objectives
to accomplish a task or reach a goal as in College,
Vocational Schools, or Military Service.

Globally KM's promote the sharing and incorporation
of information, because information and knowledge
are POWER. To see how our community can make a
difference tonight it is the opportunity to witness
and be a part of change. Visit the Cummer Museum
of Art and Garden tonight an exhibit called ONE in THREE.
Powerful, Progressive and Purpose Driven

Join us at the @CummerMuseum from 4-8 pm and
transform the future of education!
