Starving the Future. – C. Blow

Blow, Charles M. “Staving the Future.”  OP-ED.  New York Times.  August 24, 2012.  Retrieved from: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/25/opinion/blow-starving-the-future.html?_r=2

The author states how China and India are moving forward with public education compared to America who is losing education jobs and has a growing number of students living in poverty.

But instead of dramatically upping our investment in our children’s education so that they’ll be able to compete in a future that has more educated foreign job seekers, we seem to be moving in the opposite direction. A White House report issued last Saturday noted that:

“Since the end of the recession in June 2009, the economy lost over 300,000 local education jobs. The loss of education jobs stands in stark contrast to every other recovery in recent years, under Republican and Democratic administrations.”
