  • economic progress and educational achievement have always gone hand in hand in America.
  • The source of America's prosperity, then, has never been merely how ably we accumulate wealth, but how well we educate our people. This has never been more true than it is today. In a 21st century world where jobs can be shipped wherever there's an internet connection; where a child born in Dallas is competing with children in Delhi; where your best job qualification is not what you do, but what you know - education is no longer just a pathway to opportunity and success, it is a prerequisite.
  • of the thirty fastest growing occupations in America, half require a Bachelor's degree or more. By 2016, four out of every ten new jobs will require at least some advanced education or training.

  • I am calling on a new generation of Americans to step forward and serve our country in our classrooms. If you want to make a difference in the life of our nation; if you want to make the most of your talents and dedication; if you want to make your mark with a legacy that will endure - join the teaching profession. America needs you.
  • Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will use only one test when deciding what ideas to support with your precious tax dollars. It's not whether an idea is liberal or conservative, but whether it works.
  • the first pillar in reforming our schools - investing in early childhood initiatives.
  • Early Learning Challenge Gran
  • better standards and assessments
  • They are spending less time teaching things that don't matter, and more time teaching things that do
  • challenge our states to adopt world-class standards that will bring our curriculums into the 21st century.
  • develop standards and assessments that don't simply measure whether students can fill in a bubble on a test, but whether they possess 21st century skills like problem-solving and critical thinking, entrepreneurship and creativity.
  • money is tied to results
    • Randy Rodgers
       
      Research doesn't support the idea that money=successful schools, unfortunately.
  • using data to track how much progress a student is making and where that student is struggling

      Individualization--good plan
  • third pillar of reform -- recruiting, preparing, and rewarding outstanding teachers.
  • politics and ideology have too often trumped our progress.
  • extra pay to Americans who teach math and science
  • if a teacher is given a chance but still does not improve, there is no excuse for that person to continue teaching
  • fourth part of America's education strategy - promoting innovation and excellence in America's schools.
  • I call on states to reform their charter rules, and lift caps on the number of allowable charter schools,
  • We can no longer afford an academic calendar designed when America was a nation of farmers who needed their children at home plowing the land at the end of each day.
  • expand effective after-school programs
  • rethink the school day to incorporate more time - whether during the summer or through expanded-day programs
  • let us all make turning around our schools our collective responsibility as Americans. That will require new investments in innovative ideas. That is why my budget invests in developing new strategies to make sure at-risk students don't give up on their education; new efforts to give dropouts who want to return to school the help they need to graduate; and new ways to put those young men and women who have left school back on a pathway to graduation.
  • The fifth part of America's education strategy is providing every American with a quality higher education - whether it's college or technical training.
  • simplify federal college assistance forms
  • the goal of having the highest proportion of college graduates in the world by the year 2020.
  • Adults of all ages need opportunities to earn new degrees and skills
  • bottom line is that no government policies will make any difference unless we also hold ourselves more accountable as parents.
