I like strawberry cheesecake ice cream.
Not everyone likes strawberry cheesecake ice cream and no matter how much I may evangelize for this tasty dessert there will always people who, for any number of reasons, will not like it, and/or for any number of reasons will prefer another option, say for this writing, blueberry ice cream.
I believe in Texas’s K-12 public schools.
Not everyone believes in Texas’s K-12 public schools and no matter how much I or others may evangelize for this form of schooling there will always be people who, for any number of reasons, will not like it and/or will prefer other schooling options.
The promulgation of the good and great things that happen in Texas’s K-12 public schools while necessary only addresses one very slim slice of an equation: why not to not like Texas’s public schools. Left unaddressed are the many reasons why people do not like or are dissatisfied with this schooling option (their validity is not a subject of this writing) and why other schooling options are preferred.
It’s important, good, healthy, and necessary to promote the wonders of Texas’s K-12 public schools, but do not be disheartened if it does not create many converts – especially in the ranks of politicians – because the message, by the nature of that which it addresses, is not capable of doing that.
