“Students should graduate from high school with a plan and a purpose. Schools should equip students with the core ethical values necessary to make our community, state and nation both intelligent and morally responsible. Our communities should perceive school as a resource and partner that develops future citizens with a global work ethic and skill level that is competitive in the United States and abroad.”
