Cynthia Gonzalez is an experienced educator with a strong grasp of both the big philosophical picture and the day-to-day work of educating students. She’s what the school board needs, writes the editorial board. https://t.co/bAMyNinv8Q
NBC's @LesterHoltNBC talked to four students at a Washington, D.C. high school in his new role as the first ambassador for @Poynter's @MediaWiseTips, a program designed to help young people discern fact from fiction onlihttps://t.co/GHLIAGC4U0ne.
In the year since their friends were killed, the students of Parkland refused to settle for the way things are and marched, organized, and pushed for the way things should be - helping pass meaningful new gun violence laws in states across the country. I'm proud of all of them.
Young people have helped lead all our great movements. How inspiring to see it again in so many smart, fearless students standing up for their right to be safe; marching and organizing to remake the world as it should be. We've been waiting for you. And we've got your backs.
One year ago today, a horrific act of violence took the lives of 14 students and 3 educators in Parkland, Florida. On this somber anniversary, we honor their memory and recommit to ensuring the safety of all Americans, especially our Nation’s children... https://t.co/MDnSX1BFeW
Looking like Nick Sandman & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgements proving out to be false - smeared by media. Not good, but making big comeback! “New footage shows that media was wrong about teen’s encounter with Native American” @TuckerCarlson
- forced CNN town hall - got new commitments from Rubio - pressured POTUS to call for bump stock ban - led advertisers to leave NRA - dragged D'Souza, Ingraham, O'Reilly online - saw Florida aide fired for lies - raised *millions* for march
Nick Sandmann and the students of Covington have become symbols of Fake News and how evil it can be. They have captivated the attention of the world, and I know they will use it for the good - maybe even to bring people together. It started off unpleasant, but can end in a dream!
Yesterday I met with high school students on Chicago’s Southwest side who spent the summer learning to code some pretty cool apps. Michelle and I are proud to support programs that invest in local youth and we’re proud of these young people.
