AMERICAN K-12 EDUCATION IS IN NEED OF A MAJOR OVERHAUL
If you have concluded that our public schools are in trouble, you may be asking yourself, “So, what am I supposed to do about it?”
We must work together to bring change to our nation’s education system through education reform.
So, how do we do this?
After much thought, I believe the proper path forward is to replicate the State of Maryland’s just completed school reform master plan. They commissioned a team to take a comprehensive look at their entire public school system. The Maryland legislature established the Commission on Innovation and Excellence in Education in 2016. The Commission is comprised of 25 individuals appointed by various policymakers and education organizations.
As an author and educational researcher, I would like to provide background information to help explain what is happening to education both here in Indiana and throughout the nation. There are major issues with how we try to engage and educate our children and we need serious and widespread reform.
