"I came out of industry; worked in a factory for about ten years where we so careful to put the pieces and parts together to create a perfect product. Upon inspection, if the pieces weren't perfect, you had to recall them. We have to do a better job of raising and educating our kids because if we don't get it right the first time, you can't recall a kid."
"The primary goal of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District is to become a premier school district in the United States."
--Coach Ted Ginn, Sr. - Founder of The Ginn Academy (03/01/2012)
"Every single adult complication can be directly traced back to a childhood trauma. "Born, Not Raised" takes the reader on a dark path that shines just enough light to hopefully alter the direction of our youth."
--Jennifer Storm - author of Blackout Girl and Leave the Light On. (03/01/2012)
