What Other African Country Would Jasmine Brown Like to Visit?

A country I would like to visit is Egypt. I want to visit the pyramids. I love ancient history. The way these pyramids were built is so amazing. I would like to visit the Nile River, see people who live there learn their ways and culture. This is another place in Africa I would go.

Jasmine Brown’s Thoughts About Cathy Black, The Ex-NYC’s School Chancelor

   Yes I believe people have a right to be upset that the new NYC School Chancellor is not an educator.  Parents want someone who really knows what’s going on in the schools in New York City.  Public schools are not the same as the private schools. In the public school, you have teachers who could care less whether or not a student passes or fails. However, this is not so with private school.

   Last year I attended a public high school. But this year I started a new one, a private school. Students need help find ways that ensure they graduate with not just good grades but excellent grades. The teachers care and are doing all they can so that we learn and reach our full potential.

Jasmine Brown on the Public Outcry for Gun Control

 I  believe  that  we  do  need  better  gun  control  laws  in  our  country. These  laws  are  needed  to  insure  that  the right  people  have   guns.  A  lot  of  bad  people  have  gun  that  do  not  need  to  have  them  around.  That is why  a  lot  of  innocent  people  die.  The  more  we  keep  guns  out  of  the  wrong  hands  the  safer  we  will  be.  I think  a  way  we  can  help  this  issue  is  to report  to the authorities if  we see  someone who shouldn’t  have a gun with  one.  In other words we should say something when we see something.

Given the Recent Situation in Egypt, How Does Jasmine Brown Feel About Living in a Democracy?

I believe it’s important for people to live in a democracy just for the simple fact that your opinion counts. In a democracy, the people of a state have to go through a long process in order to make one decision. Most of the time in a democratic nation we spend time electing, voting, debating, compromising, in order to have a possible solution. In a Dictatorship, the leader makes a decision and that’s final. What would take us a year in a democracy would take them months or even weeks in a dictatorship. They don’t sit and think how it would help the people or ask the people what they want. They just say and people do it.

What Would Jasmine Brown Say to President Obama If She Could Speak With Him?

Dear journey for change followers,

          If I had 15 minutes to talk to President Obama about a social problem facing our country or the world today I would talk about the recession. I think that the recession is a big issue because a lot of people are affected by it. The first question would be, “How did we get into this big recession everyone is talking about?” The second question would be, “when do you think the recession will be over?” I believe the recession is an important topic because it affects people’s life style. Someone is losing their job every day. They will not be able to support their families. This is very important and that’s why I would want to talk to President Obama about it.

What Social Problem Would Jasmine Brown Try to Solve If She Had $1 Million?

Dear journey for change followers,      

      If I was given $1 million dollars to combat any problem in the world it would be to help children who have a learning disorder. First, I would take the money and build the best learning facility for them. This building would be a school for kids who don’t want to attend a regular school because they get teased. Believe it or not 10 to13 percent of kids experience some form of bulling because of their disorder. This building will also consist of an area for kids who just need the one on one time. Then the rest of the money would go to the best teachers and specialists who are willing to work with these kids. Doing this would give all the children with a learning disorder a chance to have fun learning and reach their full potential.

Which Leader Inspires Jasmine Brown the most?

Dear Journey for change,

A person I look up to is President Barack Obama. Obama is a leader of education .When he was elected it felt like a new beginning. At that point I knew our country would be okay. I look up to him the most because of The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act:

“President Obama urged Congress to pass and he signed The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act which focused in education both as a way to provide jobs now and lay the foundation for long-term prosperity. The Act includes $5 billion for early learning programs, including Head Start, Early Head Start, child care, and programs for children with special needs. It also provides $77 billion to strengthen elementary and secondary education. Improve achievement in low-performing schools, through intensive support and gather information to improve student learning, teacher performance, and college and career readiness through enhanced data systems.

Teachers are the most important resource to a child’s learning. President Obama will ensure that teachers are treated as professionals in the classroom, while also holding them more accountable. He will invest strategies to help teachers to improve student outcomes. President Obama will invest in a national effort to prepare and reward outstanding teachers, while recruiting the best and brightest to the field of teaching. And he will challenge State and school districts to remove ineffective teachers from the classroom.”  http://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/education

 Only a leader who truly cares about my education could do all of this for us. Not a lot people believe we can make it, not a lot of people care if we try. I know that as long as you have someone who wants to invest in your education because they believe in you then all you need to do is to focus and work hard. This is why I look up to President Barack Obama.

 Sincerely,

 Jasmine Brown
