EDUCATING AMERICA

Issue

America’s inner cities need repair and a major overhaul. Some of the problems require a focus on safety, jobs and schools, certainly not race.

Why are we wondering how to stop it? Jobs, education and public safety. Computer hardware, automation, and software can replace people. This is why education is the obvious key, just ask anyone who’s worked in automotive manufacturing or as a travel agent.

A representative sample of 122,000 eighth-graders participated in a National Assessment of Educational Progress science assessment, which is designed to measure students' knowledge and abilities in the areas of physical science, life science, and Earth and space sciences.

Results from the latest assessment are available for public and private school students in the nation and for public school students in 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Department of Defense schools.
