“Go Hard MS” visits WPHS

February 5, 2013

Every 23 seconds a student drops out of school. The group with Go Hard Mississippi, a drop out preventative program want to change that, at least in Mississippi schools. Aldric Beal of Newton, and a graduate of Newton High School, has been with the program for two years and wants to get teens excited about staying in school.
“We want to interact with the kids and have fun,” said Beal. “We try to throw in a few life lessons and hope the message will stick with them. They need to stay in school and prepare for their future. I hope a few of them get that.”

It is often said that “children are our most valuable resources.”
If that is coming out of a parent’s mouth, it is probably meant with the best of intentions.
If those are the words of a politician or a political change agent, the meaning is likely entirely different.
While parents naturally see children as the next in line to take up the torch for the previous generation, politicians view kids as nothing more than human resources or pawns.
