Failing to educate our kids

American is falling behind the rest of the world in intellectual infrastructure – we now rank 14th, 17th, and 25th, respectively, in reading, science, and math when compared to the 34 most developed nations on the world – many of which send their kids to college for free. No nation can be successful and compete in a global economy – with poorly education young people. Also, according to a new report from the OECD – the United States is the ONLY G-20 nation whose new workers have less education than its retiring workers.

About James Crist

How do we stop America's decline? The country is in trouble and we can all feel it. Where did we go wrong? How do we fix it? We now have an auction-based government, for sale to the highest bidder. Politicians have become nothing more than corporate whores and pawns for the rich. If we want our representatives to represent us, let them get their campaign money from us, their constituents. We have to amend the constitution to get the big money out of politics.
