Dear Cleveland,

I would really like to see a change in the relationships between police and youth. Many police officers make false assumptions about youth based on their skin color which is so wrong. Officers need to work on growing their relationship with the youth of Cleveland rather than continuing to decimate.

I would also love to see a change and improvement in the life skills that should be discussed more. All of Cleveland’s youth is the future and learning more about taxes, handling money, sexual harassment, and many more life skills would be extremely beneficial to the youth.

Another issue that needs to be addressed further is education. Everyone deserves to have an equal opportunity to learn and sometimes that is not the case. It is also important to help the kids who want to go to college but need help improving thief applications and bettering their grades and test scores to be able to get into college.

Sincerely,

Molly
