Grier said that we have too many kids who can’t read the technical manuals to get certified for a high paying job, even though the manuals are written at an 8th grade level!

Kids in China and India have had to struggle with extreme poverty. They have the drive to excel, more than our own kids. We need that same motivation. You’ll find my Global American roadmap to success here and “Agenda for American Greatness.”
We have excellent role models for these kids in the likes of San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, who may soon become Obama's Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
