We Do Need An Education

Posted by JumpyPants

Is there a magic bullet to creating a better future, one in which the planet starts to get better, the economy is robust yet equitable, and humanism catches up with technology?

Sure there is: education.

Education is the key to a real future not just for America but for the planet. And guess who knows this? That's right: President Obama. Which is why his stimulus package is all about the education:

The proposed emergency expenditures on nearly every realm of education, including school renovation, special education, Head Start and grants to needy college students, would amount to the largest increase in federal aid since Washington began to spend significantly on education after World War II.

Biggest federal investment in education since WWII. Wow. That's...the last several decades are making so much more sense.
