A community is a fancy term for a group of families who live in close proximity to one another. Every family – broken, nuclear and extended – affects the community in some way. The impact on others may be overt or indirect, but all are affected nonetheless.
High schools must provide the information necessary for students to become capable, productive citizens because, upon graduation, students will become an asset to society or a burden on it. Unwed mothers, divorce, drug and alcohol dependency, and lawlessness create an unsafe and economically challenged society. Moreover, consequences are sure to get worse over time as the cycle of personal failure and social problems is perpetuated by each successive generation.
Despite the influence from state administrators, the community is the focal point of decisions made in the local high schools. The one decision managers and representatives can make that will benefit the community most is to better prepare high school students for the challenges of love and marriage.
We need to teach high school students why the feelings of love will affect them the way they do, how “love” and “repellence” form a naturally repeating cycle, and how best to prepare for when love temporarily goes away.
Not every relationship and child will be saved. Still, it is our duty to prepare students adequately so they have the opportunity to save themselves. “Knowledge is power!” We can make our children powerful by arming them with the secret to success in romance and fulfillment in marriage. Such is the point and purpose of It's Not About Love.
