Our public education system has not been keeping up when compared to other industrialized nations. The United States is not considered in the top 10 in the world. The OECD's PISA report for 2010 ranked the US 14th for reading, 25th for math, and 17th for science out of 65 industrialized nations.

Economically speaking, without a strong education system the US will not be able to compete for the best jobs and best companies. Socially, an educated citizenry is vital for a well functioning democracy and an elevated public discourse.

We need to teach responsibility, accountability, and resilience. Reward good work. Re think special education and re define it. Encourage more teaching as late careers. If we do not make our system stronger, our children will not be critical thinkers and will be at the mercy of those nations who have addressed this issue.
