FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
BATTLEGROUNDS: THE FIGHT TO SAVE AMERICA’S EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM!
LOCAL EDUCATOR TAKES THE LEAD TO TEACH ABOUT EDUCATION AND FINANCE IN AMERICA
East Hartford, Connecticut 01,01,2012. Educator and author, Todney Harris will be celebrating the launching of his new, informative and controversial book entitled Battlegrounds: America’s War in Education and Finance: The Fight to Save Public Education in America on January 15, 2012. America’s economic classes (lower, middle and upper), as well as America’s most important institution education focuses and revolves around the economic philosophy of capitalism.
The book is a call for urgent action to parents, the government, community activists, and all advocators of education that a plan must be enacted in order for our children to realize the importance of education and stay in school. Harris provides insight that the government and many school officials are not telling the public. Harris presents tips and solutions to address negative influential factors such as drugs, lack of parental involvement and the government’s current reform practice etc., that affect America’s educational setting.
When asked what message he hopes readers will take away from his book, Harris states, “It is not my intent to be controversial or racist, but I just wish to state for the record that there are burning issues/problems that need addressing. This situation is dire. I cannot express the sense of urgency that is upon us. All I ask is to be given the opportunity to foster discussion, as well as the opportunity to speak openly and in a candid manner regarding our current educational and economic issues.”
