In America, a war on education is being won. It began in the shadow of economic breakdown. It is ending in the harsh light of globalization and rapid technological growth. Once the United States led the world in education; it has now slipped to 14th place, into mediocrity and the grip of privatization.
The question is: why? Is it because this country has lost education as a priority? No, it is public education that we have lost as a priority. But what can we do about it?
We must end the war and begin reconstruction.
We’ll then need a United Nations of Education. First-world countries would contribute proportionally; third world countries would be assisted proportionally; management would be globally structured. No one country could dominate, and no country would fall to the wayside.
