The proclamation for the Million Father March was presented at the school board meeting on September 23, 2014. A father who actively participates in the educational and social-emotional developmental life of a child is invaluable and irreplaceable. Research shows that children whose fathers take active roles in their educational lives earn better grades, score higher on tests, enjoy school more and are more likely to graduate from high school and attend college. It is with this notion that the School Board of St. Lucie Public Schools, of Ft. Pierce, Fl., proclaims Tuesday, October 7, 2014, as Million Father March Day, Men take their Children to School Day. We call upon all citizens to observe this day by taking time to recognize and acknowledge the importance of male influence on educational success.
