Gabrielle Union wants education to be a priority

Gabrielle-Union.jpg Gabrielle Union believes education is far more important than fame. It's hardly surprising. Not only is she a fantastic actress, she earned a sociology degree from UCLA. She's taking some time to reach out to her Twitter followers to let them know how she feels about the subject.

"When a parent can tell me their child's fave basketball player/rapper/actor but doesn't know the name of their kids teacher, [I feel] rage," Union tweeted. "It's great your kid wants to model, but is she a model student? We've gotta get serious about education!" She responded to followers who asked her about her own education by saying, "Sociology degree from UCLA paid 4 w/ student loans & job at the book store :)"

In a world full of reality shows and people getting famous for their bad behavior, it's refreshing to read tweets like what Union said about teachers. "When a parent can tell me their childs fave basketball player/rapper/actor but doesn't know the name of their kids teacher #RAGE"

She's also been in the news lately for her apparently wonderful relationship with beau and Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, making healthy jokes about marriage, and statements about waiting until you're ready. Now this is a real role model. Gabrielle, we salute you!
