Our children are born with the magic of their innate potential: potential that could enable them to make vast contributions to our world. Unfortunately, as CEO of the National Urban Alliance, I have witnessed children who have been scarred by toxic experiences outside and inside school that have wounded their minds so deeply, their learning potential is hampered, going unrecognized by them and those upon they depend. CEI provides educators with guidance in strategies of mindful education that heal our students so the magic of their potential can be rekindled to thrive and personal success can be realized. How can we afford not to recognize and support such a vital effort?!
