The youth are the architects of tomorrow - Deborah ‘Deb’ Elam

Deborah ‘Deb’ Elam

The youth are the architects of tomorrow and it is imperative that we educate them as such. This fact is not lost on the many communities, institutions, and organizations across the nation that have been persistent in their pursuit of education for the youth. However, it is time to shift our attention towards those who are uplifting, empowering, and educating our youth who are all too often underrepresented, marginalized, and overlooked.

In your opinion, what are some steps we could take to embrace difference, expand curriculums, and aid the disparities in our education systems?
