PURCHASE The Four Steps of Hotep, Written by David N. Roach.
“Healthy Economics,” as described by David N. Roach, defines the schools in the neighborhood as the communities nucleus for development. Healthy Economics attempts to utilize the inter-generational populations of a school, to increase the sustainability of the overall community.
Healthy Economics believes every school should have a functioning Student Government Association, Parent Teacher Association and Alumni association.
Healthy Economics also declares that,” every school should have a garden, a farmers market and grocery store.
Healthy Economics divides this inter-generational population into three main organizations: The Student Government Association, The Parent Teacher Association and The Alumni Association and attempts to collaborate them as the Intergenerational Enterprise.
The main function of The Inter-generational Enterprise is to manage/own the schools garden, farmers market and grocery store.
The students will benefit by learning more about governance, while gaining hands on work experience within their community. To illustrate, when the students graduate from the school in their neighborhood, they will assume the role of Alumni and support/mentor/volunteer to further develop the businesses they once employed them as students.
How does a school/community get started towards building Healthy Economics?
Healthy Economics defines each 1st Saturday of the month as the “Official Volunteer/Recruitment Day.”
Every Superintendent/Principal/ Teacher, of every school, should add to their annual school calendar, SAVE THE DATE’S – 1ST SATURDAY’S – VOLUNTEER/RECRUITMENT DAY.
The agenda- Update from the Principal. Update from Student Government Association, PTA, Alumni. Hear updates/minutes from each organization and welcome new members, community partners. Progress on school’s garden, farmers market and grocery store.
