Salathia Mcclendon Posted almost 2 years ago Stuart Firestein: The pursuit of ignorance I appreciate your acknowledgment. My point is that education should be universal across our entire United States of American. While individual States hold the power to customize their plans and resources other students across the nation do not have equal educational rights or opportunities. The only way to ensure equal educational rights, opportunities, resources, and supports is to relinquish the States power to govern education in to the hands of a Federal agency. This will allow all students the opportunity to attend more prestigious institutions. This will also ensure that the curriculum being taught on one coast is also being taught on the opposite coast. Surely this will level the playing field in the competition for corporate careers. When all school systems can afford to utilize "state of art" technology to implement education, we all win. More education equals more training. More training equals more jobs. More jobs equal more careers. The thinkers of today create hope for tomorrow.
