Then during college week we talked about what school is like at that level. If you want more information here is a powerpoint for reference. Click on the Power point to know more about College. UCLA is not the only school, there are many others. Since I went there I do think it is a good choice. :^)
So please learn your AVID skills too. Most of the students care about the topics and issues we are discussing and want things to improve for many people. But it takes more than talking about them; we also need to learn and understand about the issues to change them. Remember our Four Basic American Principles.
Four Principles of Government in the Declaration of Independence
All people are created equal.
All people have basic rights that cannot be taken away.
The government gets its power to make decisions and to protect rights from the people.
When the government does not protect the rights of the people, the people have the right to change or remove the government.
Finally if you believe in these ideas, to make these ideals come to fruition, or come true for our country, it takes all of us becoming great students and nice people; who are not hating on people at school and abroad. You know what I mean, Matadors, because we talk about it everyday! Follow the social contract. Peace, Love, and Happiness.
