VAEME: I'm really passionate about the issue of education in this country, and it frustrated me that not everyone is given an equal opportunity from the get-go. I think it's staggering when you look at the statistics that you see kids of color and how quickly they are arrested, suspended, and how that leads to a school-to-prison pipeline instead of a school-to-better opportunity pipeline. And you get that when you're in an environment that empowers you, that gives you the tools to learn more. Learn more than what you can be taught at home or on your street or wherever you come from. Secretary Clinton has a very comprehensive plan when it comes to approaching education in this country. From the youngest age to the kids who go to college, knowing that we want to equalize the playing field from the very beginning. So you don't have an achievement gap, you don't have a words gap, you don't have kids playing catch-up. And we dismantle a cycle of poverty of incarceration of anything that holds people back. I cosign with Hillary Rodham Clinton because she's got grit, she's got grace, and a can do attitude. She will get it done.
