Education is the building block of success. The future of our country depends on preparing the minds of our youth to meet the vigor’s of competition in a global society. American public education has been failing 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.
The rest of the world has taken advantage of modern technology, the internet and the World Wide Web to raise their academic achievement as they are hungry to raise their standards of living for themselves and future generations. Inadvertently we have rested on our laurels and have fallen behind. Education cannot stop after grade 12 or college because we are in a global economy competing with countries and individuals throughout the world. We must strive to be better on an ongoing basis.
