All of you received the so-called “manifesto” which dealt with public education and reform. This follow up blitz will be brief. All of you represent distinct points of view, alongisde distinct cultural and political affiliations. But I believe, that those of you who want to help your fellow Americans and or people in general, will agree that all of us share in common this undertaking.

This is a reminder that the first meeting of the Student Reform Movement will be held on Wednesday, January 21, from 8:00 to 9:00 in the Collis Common Ground. We will be meeting to discuss viable solutions to the public education dilemma.

We need people who are committed, who are willing to take some time out of their busy lives, and help children and their families. We need people who are good organizers, who are good at establishing connections between local officials and the community at large. We need people who make the Dartmouth College Community at large aware of the problems facing our country, and aware of what they can do to help. We need people who will go into areas that are impoverished, languishing, or just in need of some form of help. We will in short, do anything to help better our nation’s educational system, one step at a time.

I strongly advise all who are interested to attend this meeting. The time for talk and “what ifs” has long since passed. It seems that direct action, and I mean en masse, is necessitated. We can do this, we can make a difference, we can reform our society, and ultimately this nation, and change it for the better. We just need to try.

So…come voice your opinions and help us craft a coherent and cohesive plan of action at Collis Common Ground from 8:00 to 9:00.

Thank you.
