From The White House (Weekly Address)

Strengthening the American Education System

President Obama explains that states will have greater flexibility to find innovative ways of improving the education system, so that we can raise standards in our classrooms and prepare the next generation to succeed in the global economy.

Thanks for posting this, and 'amen' to all of it. I don't know what it means when our country seems to have an omnipotent military, and an impotent educational system.....? I guess if we keep them dumb its easier to hand them a gun and say 'Now go out there and kill the bad guys.' (I better stop here before I really get ranting.)

Yes, education is entirely important, but where will these educated people work? Right now, there are so many educated people out of jobs or underemployed with little or no benefits. I hear the Microsoft campus is filled with workers from India who have replaced American workers at a fraction of their salaries. I don't know what the answer is... Hopefully an educated public will lead to better policies.
