We can increase the quality and availability of education by learning from and expanding programs that work now.
Education is the great equalizer in our society. Getting our money's worth out of our education system means giving our kids a globally competitive chance in the future. That has to be our focus.
To do so, we must use technology to empower teachers and provide better educational content at a fraction of the cost, increase the array of educational options available to our children and encourage families and students to choose the education that's best for them.
The answer cannot be to simply spend more money on education -- we must spend more wisely, invest more carefully, and be better stewards.
