“In addition to teaching the fundamentals to our children, it is essential that our education system develops the children with the soft skills necessary to be successful either in the workforce or higher education, including strong communication skills, self confidence, a sense of responsibility, dependability and a strong work ethic. Most companies can provide new workers with the basic training for a job, but they can’t train you to show up on a consistent basis with a strong work ethic and a ‘can do’ attitude. I have been so impressed when meeting many of the students in our various charter schools, particularly Milwaukee College Prep, where they greet you with a firm handshake and look you right in the eye. This is no guarantee of future success, but it is a great foundation.”
