    My hope is that they pay attention to sex education. It seems like the vincy young men want to breed the young women them then beat them up and treaten them out of jealousy or idiocy. Then leave them as obese single mothers. Them thing just can’t fly. I does see some very pretty vincy women then next time you see them they weight 300 pounds.

    Congrats Madame Jack. While Sex education is critical, having the information & NOT applying it makes NO SENSE. Just remember “life is a 2 way street & we hsve 2 meet each other half way”. Having said that, the young men cant “breed” the young women unless the latter allow it. Too much FREE contraceptives available & knowledge sharing, so YOUNG WOMEN MUST LEARN TO SAY NO OR PROTECT THEMSELVES!

  3. We need people/ candidate in that position who have the people’s interest at heart .not candidates who is towing the party lines. Corruption is a quintessential part of the Education system.changing the players without reforming the apparatus, is an exercise in futility. We need change, fundamental principle change. Just saying
