Celebrating American education

education American Education Week was Nov. 12-18. In celebration of the event, may I present some information for your attention?    Are American schools doing a pretty good job of educating America's kids? Of course they are.
    Are there things that could be done better in American schools? Of course there are.
    Will our current system and philosophy of education serve us well in the 21st century? Possibly not, but then teachers have been saying as much for years.
    Changes are on the way. While they're coming, let's celebrate what we've accomplished so far!
