Abety’s A+ Approach
for Miami-Dade Schools
As a longtime children’s advocate, Mo Abety appreciates the importance of focusing resources on student achievement, setting high standards, a rigorous curriculum, and recruiting and retaining high quality teachers. As a school board member, Abety will be an invaluable voice for parents and children who want our schools to put student learning ahead of teaching to a test. Abety will work with his colleagues on the school board to urge Tallahassee to reform the onerous testing requirements that only serve to line the pockets of testing companies while failing to advance true student learning in our school system. For Abety, it’s all about giving teachers the tools they need to do what they do best- teach!
Mo Abety believes that having strong accountability measures is paramount to a strong school system. As a school board member, Abety will work with students, teachers and parents alike to ensure that Miami-Dade’s accountability system works for all our children and for all tax payers. Our Miami-Dade Delegation to the Florida Legislature also needs to be held accountable for ensuring that we get our fair share of the State’s education dollars. As a grandfather, he knows that giving our children the best education system means a brighter future for them and our community.
Mo Abety has seen first-hand through his work with The Children’s Trust the key to building success for our children. Abety has been on the frontlines fighting to give our children the well-being and ability to grow and learn in our school system. His passion for children’s issues stems from his belief that through growing ability and access to a strong education system, children of all abilities can have the tools they need to live up to their greatest potential.
