Education, according to this clip, is a greater problem right now than healthcare, the economy, and national security. Why is it not getting the attention it might deserve, regardless of reform and technology involvement? The effects of ignoring this problem are not immediate. Ignoring national security or healthcare has drastic, immediate effects. However, ignoring education has effects that are NOW starting to show.
Problems in education root back to years ago because those are the students that are not old enough to run the country. The effects of the education problem may not be immediate, but when they hit, they hit hard. It is shown in how low the United States has dropped in comparison to other countries, and will continue until change happens. This video also points out that we cannot fix many of the problems we want to before we fix the education system. We need to get at the root of the problem because it is still growing right under our feet.
