Unless one is destined for the ranks of wildly successful college dropouts like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, education remains the traditional route to professional and financial success for many Americans. Consider themedian incomes for workers aged 25 and older in 2014. Those with a bachelor’s degree earned 65 percent more than those with only a high school diploma, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The data reveal that income potential grows — and chances of unemployment shrink — as one’s educational attainment improves.
And with school resuming session, many parents will be seeking the best school districts to secure their children’s academic success. When comparing their options, however, parents should recognize that the amount of available public funding is by no means a determinant of a school system’s quality, as our findings demonstrate, though money is certainly helpful.

Exactly why is Mississippi trying to follow the lead of Louisiana and Florida? Why aren't school reformist in Mississippi visiting Massachusetts, Colorado or New Jersey?

LONDONDERRY, N.H. — While some Republicans have called for abolishing the federal Education Department, Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Wednesday set his sights on a smaller target: the teachers’lounge. At an education forum here featuring several GOP presidential contenders, Kasich offered many kind words for teachers and teachers unions, but...
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
OK so the faculty rest rooms are usually in the lounge, as are the copy machines, and other teacher shared work resources...not to mention this is where many teachers are luck enough to get a duty free 20 to 30 minute lunch break......We need to have them install these type of perks for the Ohio Governor at the gas station closest to his office and take away his chair too if he thinks teachers don't need a lounge. This shows how out of touch he is with what teaching is all about. I guess the state should give all teachers in Ohio all these requirements right inside each classroom.
An interesting ticket would be Sanders, Lessig, Warren or John Stuart….The common factor all of these people have in common is that they lead by inspiring ordinary citizens to actively participate in shaping the policy that affects their own future and that of our global citizens as well. I find very little visionary or successful answers in placing the desperate people of the world behind walls or bob-wire or saddling them with lifetime debt in pretense of offering real help. It is time to regain a moral base in our treatment of humanity and our planet. I am not saying we should cuddle extremely obsessive "religious" groups like DASHE (Isis). The people of the world are a family and families might and a good moral family is there to offer support to each other. It is time to let Ayn Rand's morality "The Virtues of Selfishness" lay in her grave with her! I never realized how many of our leaders had become influenced with her flawed concept and quietly shaped policy by it for decades.
