    Advantages to educating girls
    Let Girls Learn is not just important philosophically, it can also impact the United States and the world in economic ways.
    According to a study done by CNN, “just a one percent increase in the number of women who’ve completed secondary school can push per capita income growth by .3%.”. women working tying to learning tying to economy. In the launch of the Let Girls Learn initiative Mr.Obama recognized that females are “valued more for their bodies than their minds which, “is a bad strategy for any country that is serious about growing their economy or promoting stability.”. This piece of his speech is not just an angry rant. This may look like a small statistic but think about it after it's added up a bit more. So much more income per capitas! “The evidence of economic impact of educating girls is overwhelming.” Because along with raising its country’s gdps, countries who educate their girls raise female income by eighteen percent for every extra year of secondary school. An economic advantage , its hard to imagine any smart country that wants to get ahead would look past. Another study “showed that girls who were educated are less likely to contract HIV.”. In sub Saharan Africa and South and West Asia, Girls who have an education of the secondary degree will decrease child marriage by a staggering sixty four percent. This delays childbearing which “leads to a lower rate of infant mortality.”.Closely related to this is the matter of maternal deaths, as in a country like Sub-Saharan Africa, a primary education could lower their rate of maternal deaths to seventy percent. In India, girls who have been educated are empowered and have a more likely chance of resisting violence. “And when girls are raising healthier families and contributing more to their workforce, that's not just good for their economy, it can be good for our economy too since we all know rising incomes and standards of living abroad are good for companies here at home.”

    First Lady Michelle Obama and Global
    More of what we are missing out on when sixty two million girls are uneducated
    “Imagine”, Mrs.Obama said to a crowd at a Let Girls Learn event in Tokyo, Japan, “if Sadako Ogata was never able to attend school and become one of the greatest diplomats of our time? Imagine the loss of her moral leadership at the United Nations. And what if the great violinist, Midori had never had the chance to discover her talent. Think about all of the music we would have never heard. Think of all of the beauty our world would have lost. And how about Chiaki Mukai? Without her education, she never could have become the first woman astronaut in japan, inspiring so many girls to reach for the stars.” (6) True, these examples are primarily japanese leaders, but also true, we have examples of people that could be inserted anywhere into that list that we as americans are inspired by. Beyonce, for example- think of the loss of musicality and beauty. Astronomical, if you ask me. The point being that each of us, and each of those girls halfway, or all the way across the world, “have a unique perspective.” We each “have a unique voice to add to the conversation”. And therefore, it is important to, “fulfill every last one of” our “dreams, not just for” us “but for” everyone.(all 8) However, I reiterate, this execution of dreams that can so, as Mrs. Obama said, “beautiful”ly impact everyone in the world such as a Beyonce fan like me, is only possible with education.

    Let Girls Learn Projects and impacts
    State, USAID, The Millennium Challenge Corporation have invested, “hundred of millions of dollars providing scholarships for projects in Liberia and the Dominican Republic, doing leadership training for girls in Afghanistan, they’re building school bathrooms for girls in El Salvador. They’re taking on female genital mutilation in Guinea, forced child marriage in Bangladesh. Let Girls Learn also has a partner in the American Peace Corp. Volunteers are now running more than one hundred girls education projects in twenty two countries including girls membership programs and girls leadership camps.” The impacts of these programs and camps are quite impressive and almost need to be heard to be believed as twelve months after the initial launch of Let Girls Learn, also the start of each of the programs written above, First Lady Mrs.Obama was excited to share her examples of girls whom had been impacted by the initiative. At a summit on March eighth of this year the First Lady recounted the impacts of various girls in various countries that had been deeply impacted by her (shared) initiative. One “[...]girl named Ficor from Ethiopia who at the age of thirteen found out that her parents were planning to marry her off to a man she’d never met but Ficor had learned about the dangers of early marriage from a USAID program she had been involved in so she” knew enough to refuse to go through with said marriage. “She went on to graduate first in her entire sixth grade class.” Mrs Obama saw the, “...impact of Let Girls Learn in a young woman named Norhan in Egypt. When Norhan got accepted to a girls science and technology boarding school supported by USAID of course she was hesitant to leave but she took the plunge and today she’s an avid coder and when speaking about her plans for the future, she says, “I dream of being the youngest nobel prize winner for nuclear physics.””. Therefore it is obvious that the executions of this initiative are very important and the repercussions will not be small. Norhan sounds like she will do glass shattering work for the world, as winning a Nobel Peace Prize period is no small feat but in nuclear physics? An even harder task. With these girls' new education, and the obvious fact of them having adhere ed to it, there is big hope that the problems which stand in girls' way is looking smaller.

    Essential Question
    How can it be that there are an estimated sixty two million girls not in school? Thirty one million of these girls should or would be in that of primary school, and the other half would be in lower secondary school. This essential question leads to my American movement which has been lead by First Lady Mrs.Obama and from the very beginning, supported by our forty fourth president, Barack Obama. It is called Let Girls Learn. This initiative’s role is to make sure that girls across the world will get the education that they need, want and deserve to have.

    ...
    According to the Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund: Doing Disability Justice, the history of the ADA did not begin in 1990 when it was signed or when it was introduced to the congress. The ADA story began a long time ago in towns and cities throughout the United States. People with disabilities began to challenge societal barriers in order to try and be included in their communities.
    {protesting.png}
    ...
    equal opportunity
    law,
    law, under the
    5 Titles
    The Act is broken down into 5 different titles, these titles cover different areas of everyday life to try and make it clear that people with disabilities are 100% equal, specifically in the areas of employment, participation in government and non discrimination on the basis by public accommodations and in commercial facilities. Jobs are everywhere no matter if you need experience or not. Some jobs require more qualification than others, but under no circumstances does “qualify” mean that you can’t have a disability, especially after Title I of the ADA was put in action. Title I of the act agrees that there are equal employment opportunities for people with disabilities. It requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities. 10 years after the ADA was passed The U.S District Court in Denver, CO awarded Jack Davoll, a former Denver Police Officer over $300,000. He sought reassignment after he suffered injuries in the line of duty to his neck, shoulder and back. He could no longer perform the essential functions of a police officer. The department had won a jury award on his behalf of $300,000 in damages for pain and suffering, because of Denver’s refusal to reassign him to a vacant job that he could perform. He could have become an investigator or a probation officer, but because they denied this the act rewarded him over $300,000. The officer deserved a chance, and because he suffered and could not physically perform anymore he was let go and unemployed. This was not fair for him, the ADA helped compensate for that. In 2006, Act II and III of the ADA (facility standards) were issued by the department of transportation. Act II covers state and local government. It prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in all services, programs, and activities as well as provide to the public by state and local governments, except for public transportation services. Title III of the act prohibits places of public accommodation from discriminating against individuals with disabilities. Public accommodations include privately owned, leased, or operated facilities like hotels, retail merchants, restaurants, golf courses, doctor’s offices, health clubs etc.
