There was an extremely huge debate today about education in America, and I’m not going to go into it, but it made me sit down and write out this idea that I would like very much to do.
I would like to issue a challenge to the government to double the education budget every year for at least eight years.
I would like to see a checks and balances system instated within the education system to make sure the money isn’t all going to administration but is being used to build new schools, hire more teachers at non-insulting salaries, and improve classrooms.
I would like this project to take place over the course of a minimum of a decade, at the end of which I would like a study to take a look at the education system, comparatively.
I would like this to be a grass-roots campaign, a challenge to the government asking them if they’ve got the balls to do it. I would like the people who have expressed frustration over the current education to stand up together and throw the idea in the government’s teeth, and demand that it happen.
I may be forced to become a lobbyist.
