Gabrielle Union wants education to be a priority
"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!
