From Alan Bandler - Gulf Gate 5th Grade Class
I was at Ms. Blaine’s class at the Gulf Gate school. I much enjoyed the experience and do believe it was beneficial for the kids as well. I really appreciate the time and effort that Harold Zabin put into this program. I think it is well worth while.
From Leslie Curley - Wilkinson School
The children were delightful and the teacher was very appreciative. The students performed the script and I spoke for a few minutes about freedom of speech. I offered to return and speak to the students about freedom of speech and other First Amendment issues. Thanks to Harold Zabin for creating this opportunity.
