Below is an excerpt from the original article, which appeared on the Independent Voter Network:
"One of the biggest proposals on Emanuel’s agenda is education. As a firm believer that education is an important tool in life, he plans on focusing on children and teens that have dropped out of school and implementing programs to strengthen Los Angeles’ school system for every age group. He plans on bringing several resources to the system, such as early childhood programs, afterschool programs, and parenting classes.
“We need to make sure that community colleges are better aligned with the economy, so that community college classes and trainings are more aligned with the jobs that exist today,” Pleitez said. “We need to make sure that any worker, in any stage of their career has an opportunity to take classes so they can have a better job later.'”
