Rebuffed by Bennett

Tony Bennett, ex-superintendent of public instruction in Indiana, was surely unfit for the job.

Many of our school children smoke, use drugs and are involved in many anti-social misdeeds. The children from broken homes are picked up by the drug Mafia people and are converted into addicts. Naturally, I felt that I should organize a group to go to every school to talk to the children to be respectful to the parents, teachers and the elders and to work hard and study well to be the best, instead of wasting their time in useless fun.

With all the wonderful facilities in our schools and the good teachers, our children should be the best in the world, but they are far behind the students of other countries and it was no concern of Mr. Bennett. In China, moral education is a course in the primary schools. The children must be inspired to love the motherland, protect the environment, learn the true story of our world and build themselves into the leaders, unlike the ones we have now, to guide the world, now at the point of total destruction, to peace and prosperity.

I wrote a letter to Mr. Bennett and explained the situation and offered my services, but received no response. So I called his office and requested an interview so that I could explain to him everything personally, but he even refused to see me. I was disappointed and could not believe that a public servant, a superintendent of education, could be so rude and unconcerned about the proper education of our children.

I believe that we must have that organization to protect and guide our children to be the best leaders of the future.
