A good education is a big factor to a life filled with success and for America as a strong nation. “once upon a time, American students tested better than any other students in the world” But what about the situation now? Well, Americas educational system is old and in need of a reform. There is a huge decline at the elementary and high-school level and this is something that cannot be overlooked. As the former president, Barack Obama said, “This isn’t just important for your own life and your own future, what you make of your education will decide nothing less than the future of this country” and by overlooking this problem, the American children’s future is in jeopardy and therefore the whole nation’s future is at stake.
Does a good educational system just appear? No, it does not, there needs to be someone who must do something to improve the system and keep it updated.
