Affordable Learning Act (ALA)

THIS IS AN OPEN LETTER TO THE HONORABLE BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

Dear Mr. President.

Yes We Can, with your example, initiate the Affordable Learning Act (ALA) without an Executive Order, any legislation, government money or regulations.

You might consider it as your signature action, your enduring personal legacy to the Office of President of the United States.

You are the elected, unacknowledged, Learner-in-Chief of the nation. You are obviously an intelligent and talented person.

We all guess you learn at least one thing each day in order to complete your duties. Learning is part of your journey as a mensch, a decent human being in a turbulent world as it is part of everyone’s daily life.

So, please answer this question for us that your mother or grandmother may have asked you as many of ours asked us, “What did you learn today?”

Please consider a daily Tweet or InstaGram that tells us of something you learned each day about yourself that others can consider for ourselves. Not something written for you by a staff member, but by and from you.

It would be an updated adaptation of F.D. Roosevelt’s Fireside Chats, H.S. Truman’s morning walk interviews, and Bill Clinton’s stops and chats as he ran across DC.

 (Respectfully, we have short attention spans and don’t like speeches, so keep your show-and-tell short and graphic.)

Maybe say how, at a particularly tense time, you remembered something your grandfather said and realized what he meant, or perhaps how a singer touched your sentiments and reminded you of something special you saw in the eyes of another person.

Also, let us in on something you learned from books you read recently and how you make time to read them during your hectic schedule.

You will honor us and our efforts to learn something daily as you tell what you are learning.

We look forward to reading and seeing in classrooms across the country your example of learning something daily.

Sincerely,

Editors, Tux Reports Network for Learners in the world, young and old, rich and poor
