consultation and advocacy services; workshop development and facilitation for both public and private organizations and individuals; and resource and referral services for students with disabilities, and students struggling through the educational process. This school year, Dr. James is bringing a ten-year dream to reality. Through her foundation, Focus on Education Foundation, Inc., students in Atlanta Public Schools, Clayton County Schools, and eventually throughout the country, will receive free eye and hearing exams, glasses, hearing aides and other products that will allow them to take full advantage of their learning. Dr. James is also establishing a Think Tank that will bring educators, parents, community activist/leaders, and others together to discuss and provide solutions to the illiteracy and drop-out rates,
as well as other ills affecting the education of our children.
