EDUCATING THE YOUTH OF THE VIRGIN ISLANDS

Dear Source,
Now that the teachers have gotten the raises that have been argued over for so long, I hope the children of the Virgin Islands will get the education and help needed to improve their reading, writing and mathematical skills.
Since money motivates them to teach our youth better, instead of just the love of teaching, maybe now we could get some satisfactory scores on tests results out of the Virgin Islands.
