Abstract:

The education industry is vital to US national security. Serving as the foundation for all industries, education in America fuels the worlds most powerful economic and military engines and enables the Nation to enjoy an unprecedented standard of living. For this success to continue, the education industry must respond to globalization, rapidly advancing technologies, and demographic changes in the US. The industry is capable of making the needed adjustments, but many challenges exist. Poor achievement among minority students, low teacher retention, powerful teacher unions, shortages in graduates with advanced science and math skills, and school-choice issues must be addressed. Federal policies aimed at these challenges can lead to success.
