Education makes the difference | Letter
Editor, The Beacon:
Mukilteo’s Mayor Jennifer Gregerson is right on target “inspiring girls to follow their dreams.”
Implicit in her message is the importance of education [“Inspiring girls to follow their dreams,” Mayor's Message, page 4, Sept. 21]. It is education that opens doors for all and provides more opportunities.
The U.S. House thinks the same on a global basis, just passing the Education for All Act, that would target helping millions of children in our world finally have educational opportunities.
With education, earnings increase, birth rates drop, and communities are strengthened.
Of course, this bill still needs to pass the Senate. That is where each of us comes in: Write or call Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, long champions of education, and ask them to help pass this bill.
