There were 70,792 juveniles in juvenile detention in 2010. In addition the correlation between quality educational opportunities and potential future incarceration is incontrovertible! Let's all be educators to stop these staggering statistics.

Know Your Potential

“The wealthiest place in the world are not the gold mines of South America or the oil fields of Iraq or Iran. They are not the diamond mines of South Africa or the banks of the world.

 

The wealthiest place on the planet is just down the road. It is the cemetery. There lie buried companies that were never started, inventions that were never made, best selling books that were never written, and masterpieces that were never painted. In the cemetery is buried the greatest treasure of untapped potential” – Dr Myles Monroe
