I tend to think we are failing as a nation right now. I don't blame a political party. In fact, I am not sure politicians can do much to fix it.
I tend to think that we are preparing kids for the wrong skills in life.
If I was in charge of education, kids would be learning programming languages in school. They would be studying Chinese and not Spanish. Why would you teach kids to communicate in Spanish when Mexicans are all poor?
They would be learning real skills that they could use in life.
Do you feel you have the skills to compete in the next 20 years?
