If I were President

Length: 2 Pages 516 Words

If I were president I would strive to accomplish these three major things. First, I would strengthen our educational system, second, I would make certain that everyone has equal and fair treatment in our society, and lastly, I would secure our borders. Our education system in America is not one in which we should be very proud of. Yes, America does have excellent schools, colleges, and learning institutions, but our standards are not set as high as other countries. For example, our country does not fund our schools adequately. Teachers teach with not enough books, no supplies, or books that are often over 20 years old. How can we expect our children to be up to date with the worlds information if our teaching materials are not new? Often teachers in our public Continue...

schools are forced to buy text books and supplies for our children with their own personal money. Why do they do this Because they believe in a good education for all learners. And lastly, I would secure our countries borders in order to make all Americans feel safe in their own backyards. Companies need to be regulated better, and stricter rules need to be enforced and fined if necessary. Discrimination is not just a black and white issue, it also has to do with age, gender, equal housing, religion, national origin, and credit, to name a few. The third major thing I would strive to change if I were President would be that of securing our countries borders. I feel that we are much to willing to let people come here from other countries to stay as long as they want with out any type of monitoring. If I were president, I would also make sure that everyone in this country was treated equal and fair. If I were President, I would strive to accomplish a stronger educational system by better financing of our schools. If we had a more secure border and stricter policies on who could visit and when, our country would be a much safer place. Every American deserves the right to be treated with equality and fairness whether they are male or female, old or young, or non white. The 13th Amendment to the constitution did abolish slavery, and the 14th Amendment was passed to counter the black codes, but in reality, discrimination still occurs in every aspect today in America. Our country "prides" itself on the quality of education a person can receive here, yet teachers are one of the countries lowest paid professionals. Our country is quick to say we are the "home of the free" but we are not willing to protect that freedom.
