An Urgent Call for Leaders to put the American People Ahead of Ideological Differences
School was never easy for me. To this day, I still find reading extremely difficult, having to reread passages over and over to understand. However, I was fortunate to have had a mother and father who really cared and did everything they could to encourage me in all of my efforts.
Despite their efforts to help me, I am one of four children including a sister who is developmentally disabled, so my parents were unable to keep up with the many things happening in my life and likely distracted them from helping me in school as much as they wanted. It was only in the 11th grade that a light bulb finally went on in my head and I started thinking seriously about school. But by then, I was so far behind, and my grades were so bad, that university was out. My only education Continue reading “Postsecondary Education in Crisis” »
“The last several weeks have been torture, going from doctor’s office to doctor’s office, to hospitals and to laboratories, all in an effort to figure out why I felt so cruddy.”
That was how a very good friend of mine started his story. A story that reinforced the reason I stand resolute in my stance about servicing the private sector of education and not watering down our business-focus to work with other verticals. The fact is—and remains—private post-secondary schools, colleges, and universities—for-profit and not-for-profit—are key to the survival of this country! And while I could talk about the many programs offered by the sector, which provide a great economic impact on this country, it is clear through my friend’s story that there are none more important than the programs offered and the people they train in healthcare. And what is sad is they are being vilified by the media, which is having a devastating impact with many unintended consequences.
I rarely use our blog to talk about our company, but Friday night, at our firm’s 20th year holiday party, I could not help but feel tremendous pride in what our organization has accomplished and the culture we’ve developed along the way.
We have an amazing team—most of our people having been with us for years. As I gazed around the room, I saw some of the smartest, most savvy and innovative people I have ever known. Each of them taking tremendous pride in their work and their knowledge of being experts in their individual crafts. When I thought about our accomplishments I realized that our team’s honesty, transparency and passion is the foundation of the kind of culture and commitment that I have always wanted for our organization.
