TO: STUDENTS, PARENTS,
EDUCATORS, SCHOOLS AND SOCIETY
Human potential is one of our greatest and most essential resources.
When we provide our children with a proper education and an opportunity to reach their full potential, we are offering them a better quality of life. We are also granting our society a workforce capable of competing in a global economy – which improves quality of life for future generations. However, it goes far beyond that. For when we offer our children a proper education and an opportunity to reach their full potential, we are bestowing upon them the tools to eventually cure cancer, address climate change and chart a course through the stars.
