Abstract:

Over the past century, the US education system facilitated the development of historys greatest economic and military power, and that same system continues to provide adequate human resources for our national security. Troubling signs, however, indicate that additional education reforms are required to ensure the United States retains its competitive edge in this new century. The United States, like many nations, abounds with imaginative opportunities for education and training, but access remains uneven and is too often tied to the distribution of wealth. Despite an interventionist education policy pursued by the Bush administration to redress these inequities, the faltering economy threatens to stymie education reform.
