Fernando Rodriguez-Valls, Division of Education

Fernando After more than ten years of learning and teaching in the United States, I have come to realize that we have the optimal scenario within our public schools to create a model of communicative actions. Incorporating the historical stories born within the community into the academic knowledge embedded in text books utilized in the classrooms, we may find an affirmative answer to the question posted by other thinkers; Is Another World Really Possible?

Maybe, if we remember that you have to...

Listen if you want to be heard
Respect if you want to be appreciated
Share if you want to be fair
Love if you want to be loved
Welcome if you want to be invited
Assist if you want to be helped
