Education is the building block of success. The future of our country depends on preparing the minds of our youth to meet the challenges of competition in a global society. American public education is doing a disservice to millions of children and trapping them in failing and sometimes dangerous schools. We must insure that every child has the opportunity to achieve educational excellence.
Substandard education costs our country an average $1.2 trillion in lost productivity per year. The ramifications of a failing educational system are felt throughout all sectors of our society.
We need to take advantage of every education opportunity from public, private, parochial, prep schools along with school choice holding each accountable. We must set high standards for teacher qualifications and re-think the principle of tenure.
What is sorely lacking today are technical schools to complete with other countries in manufacturing. We are bringing in too many people from other countries while Americans are looking for job opportunities.
The rest of the world has taken advantage of modern technology and the internet to raise their academic achievement as they are hungry to raise their standards of living for themselves and future generations. We cannot rest on our achievements but need to make major structural changes in our educational system as we have fallen behind other countries. Education cannot stop after grade 12 or college because we are now competing in a global economy where countries who are more educated will excel.
Adult education / life learning is an integral part of the process of gaining the competitive edge, re-instilling confidence and the entrepreneurial spirit in all Americans.
