The Boston Globe Loves National Service
Posted by patricks54 on May 10, 2007
The Boston Globe came out yesterday with a spot on editorial, calling on presidential candidates to make National Service a part of their platform.
ServeNext’s Presidential Pledge gets is highlighted, too:
All of the presidential candidates will soon be asked to sign a pledge to more than double the size of AmeriCorps, from some 70,000 in a given year now to at least 170,000 by 2010. The effort is being coordinated by a new group, ServeNext.org, with the support of many advocates of public service. A unanimous or near-unanimous response from the candidates would help bridge the partisanship that divides American politics today, and inject an optimistic note into the campaign.
