Student success is one of the most important things in the United States because these kids are going to become the future of the country. I'm very lucky to be in a charter school. I think that if more kids were able to afford my school (STEM School), I believe that this country would prosper.
Society has been leaning towards instant gratification, fast and easy has become the primary goal. Fast food anyone? Since the younger generation is more likely to choose the easy way, where will that leave our country? Our country does not need a bunch people just laying around watching screens all day.
