The Rebirth of Education

...Study after study indicates, or even forcefully proclaims, that America’s schools are failing to educate. Comparative studies show American schools are way behind other countries on a variety of scales, yet what we get from the federal level are underfunded demands that our schools measure up to high-stakes tests, and we get inner-city and poor rural schools desperately trying to deal with nearly impossible surroundings and internal conditions with anemic budgets. One can only hope at this point that the Obama administration will provide dramatic leadership. President Obama did say, on the campaign trail, that he wants to create 20 new “Harlem Zones.” This would be one such dramatic step.
