America has NEVER been number one in the rankings for education. So isn't about time that we strive to be the best in something that leads to the rest of our great counties assets? Yes it's true that Americans can't be contolled fully, but if we start with the education system first then we can dominate the rest. I'm in high school and the ciriculum that I'm learning doesn't seem to be enough. The teachers aren't motivated to teach, and the students arent wanting to learn. If America can catch up with the rest of the world then it's okay. But to reach to be number one would be better. America needs to pay more attention to the children in the country rather than the other troubling situations going on. It would be best if in the classrooms we could seperate the people who want to learn from the the ones that don't, but we can't. But the eaisiest thing we can do is create longer school days.
