The Apple Report is a must read for people seeking to make change in an education system that needs to be relevant, applicable, and provide quality for children in the 21st century. This first-hand sharing of experiences, challenges, and attempting to function in an environment where change is not welcome is eye opening. These accounts bring to the forefront that it’s vital for parents, grandparents, and family members to stand up and ensure the system deals with real, fundamental change that provides a quality education.
If those within the system aren’t able to or won’t stand up to the bureaucracy and unions, then those outside the system must. The future of our republic depends on having an educated, informed, and skilled populace. We need entrepreneurs who have the audacity to think, create, and deal with failure in a productive manner. We are not all winners. We must experience defeat in order to enjoy victory. Reality isn’t always pretty, but it’s always helpful in shaping character. Embrace opportunity; step out in faith; visualize your significance. Become the person you want to be, not the person someone else tells you to be.
I am so grateful to have found Cathy. As a floundering wanna-be author, Cathy came along at the right time to help me get from frustrated writer to a full-fledged published author. Her ability to communicate and help her clients get through the process is priceless. Also – her positive attitude is infectious and provided me with the confidence I needed to publish, not one, but two books in 2020.
