DREAM ACT AND GED
By Profesor Martin Danenberg "El Quijote del GED"
According to a woman who participated in the Suffolk County Soccer Mental Health Carnival yesterday (August 21), my GED testimony to the New York State Assembly's Education Committee was on C-SPAN. I am pleased that this testimony was on television and look forward to helping the United States and I would love to appear on Oprah and other national shows.
The Dream Act is a dream, the GED is a reality. Time is passing by for millions of Hispanics. Maybe the Congress can squeeze by the Dream Act and Republicans are expected to gain much more power next year. The solution is to empower the Hispanic community regardless of whether there is or is no Dream Act.
A young man fighting for the "Dream Act" told the audience that 65,000 students are fighting for residency and a path to citizenship, most of them will not have an opportunity to go to college. He lives in Huntington and his family is from El Salvador. He mentioned in his speech that a lot of students drop out of school and I thank him for thinking of the others who are not yet eligible to go to college, those who need a GED.
