Schools must provide more than just standardized learning tests. Our children will win through involvement with music and arts, after school activities including producing music, chorus groups, chess teams, table top tennis tournaments, military drill teams and marching bands.
TEACHERS To Turn On The Lights
For our teachers to perform and be the best that they can be, we the parents, school principals and administrators must honor them and give them the respect and the needed resources they deserve.
People are not "poor" they are just "weak".
Our teachers need our support and respect to bring out the strengths in our children to excel and to make them strong mentally to accept any challenges on paper, in the classroom or in life. C. Gurley
Gurley will not sit back and allow this to damage and hurt our children's hope and dreams for a new school. Gurley will go to the Wilson Building and have the Council reverse their budget funding and our high schools will receive their promised funding to be renovated.
DC Public Schools Get New Funding
Calvin Gurley will push the Council to have a percentage of the D.C. Lottery sales revenue bring additional funds to our children's public schools. Both, Virginia and Maryland Governments participate in donating a percentage of their state's lottery sale revenues to their children's public schools. Why can't the District do the same?
No Waiver to No Child Left Behind Until Full, Independent Investigation in Cheating
