    in Writing

    Our Broadcast today will focus on our children, our schools and our community failures. Money is a powerful force.  We work for it, spend it, use it to satisfy our earthly longings.  But so many of our communities take our tax dollars and  fail to provide for our students.  Common Core, is only one of the issues, the other in the Largest Town in America, (Town of Hempstead) is the redevelopment going on with the wealthy developers building 6-10 story apartment buildings in a single Village of Hempstead, and failing to provide adequate classroom space for the growing families. The Village has selected a developer, Renassance Downtown, and failed to allocate appropriate funds, for development depending on tax increases to bring it about as they move out established residents.  Tune in and join in on our broadcast on blogtalkradio.com /don-durant...
