Na maioria das vezes, a conquista do poder pelo político confirma o seu fracasso humano. Hideraldo Montenegro


The White House, Washington
It was just over nine years ago that I wore the uniform of a United States Naval Officer for the last time. It seems like it was just yesterday.
After four years at the U.S. Naval Academy and nearly seven years of active duty service, including a wartime deployment to the Middle East in 2004, I gained what I would argue is the most important and meaningful title I have ever been afforded -- I am a veteran.
“Rob
I think that leaving the military is challenging for all fellow service members. From worrying about what our next careers will be, to deciding whether to go back to school, to finding a path forward through the mental and physical wounds of war, veterans face a unique set of challenges in navigating their post-military lives.
I know that this President appreciates that.
And today, he is reaffirming his commitment to ensuring that those who have served our country receive the benefits they have earned and deserve. You can watch the President’s address to veterans at Arlington National Cemetery here.
My own personal journey post-Navy has been a lucky one. It's taken me from the frenzy of a Wall Street trading desk, to the 24-7 sprint of a Presidential campaign, back to public service working for Governor Cuomo of New York, and now here to the White House, as a member of President Obama’s administration.
Of all the things I've learned during my time in uniform, there’s one that infuses all of the work we do here every day to help our veterans:
Leave no man behind.
Over the past seven years, the Administration has made good on this commitment. For all we have accomplished on behalf of our veterans, we remain vigilant and focused on the challenges that remain. As the President has said, he is "not satisfied and we are not going to let up."
Today, we are announcing important progress on each of the core pillars of the President’s agenda for veterans, as well as reinforcing the President’s steadfast commitment to doing more each and every day to help our veterans.
But there are so many ways the rest of us can make a difference. For example, yesterday the First Lady thanked Uber and Lyft for stepping up to donate free rides to veterans who need transportation to and from job interviews and work.
From the President on down, every member of this team comes to work knowing that every day is Veterans Day at the White House.
If you're proud of that record, then learn more -- and share it.
Thank you,
Rob Diamond

We want to talk to you about our nation’s high schools for a moment.
In 2008, the Department of Education required all states, for the first time, to use the same calculation for their high school graduation rate -- a key accountability measure that this administration has embraced. In 2010, President Obama and Secretary Duncan joined the America’s Promise Alliance at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to launch the GradNation campaign, setting a national goal of a 90 percent high school completion rate by 2020.
We’re seeing tangible results.
High school graduation rates have risen and are continuing to rise across America. Preliminary data from the Department of Education for the 2013-2014 school year show the narrowing gap between students from low-income families, students of color, students with disabilities, English language learners and their peers.
This increase in graduation rates is the result of hard work by millions of young people, families, educators, community leaders, business leaders and policy makers who have come together to create brighter futures for young people.
But while we celebrate this progress, we need to be smarter and more persistent if we want to continue to raise graduation rates for all students.
Young people have to be a respected voice at the center of change. The only way this works is if they’re a part of the process.
The latest report out of our research institute asked young people who left school without graduating what would have helped them stay in school. Here’s what we found:
The most powerful “innovation” contributing to students’ success is support from caring adults in schools. Young people told us they need an anchor, someone whom they can trust to be a stable presence in their lives. Even better is a web of supportive adults and peers to help them navigate their way through life’s challenges and toward graduation and a successful adulthood.
Students who do not graduate on time have been stigmatized as ‘dropouts.’ But we’ve been listening to these young people and learning about the complex and extraordinary challenges they face -- unstable housing, food insecurity, trauma, violence, physical and emotional abuse, and bullying. Leaving school may be a last resort -- but it may also feel like their only option. We’re humbled by these students’ determination not only to survive, but to craft a safe and meaningful life and to fulfill their dreams.
Today, we want to applaud those participating in the White House Next Generation High School Summit working together to accelerate innovation that creates the conditions under which all children have a real chance to succeed.
We want to encourage everyone who participates in today’s conversation to be guided by the best evidence of what works. We hope we can ‘redesign’ in such a way that teachers and other adults in schools have the time and expectation to forge real and positive relationships at every turn.
And finally, let’s be persistent: The policies, practices and stigmas that contribute to opportunity gaps in this country were long in the making -- and they will take time and attention to dismantle.
Thank you,
