"TheEconomic Impact of the Achievement Gap in America's Schools"
concludedthat the growing gaps in educational achievement between
theUSA(graduates) and the industrialized nations, "impose the
economicequivalentof a permanent recession -- one substantially
largerthan thedeep recession thecountry is currently experiencing."
The Colossal Failure of U.S. K-16 Schooling
is America's #1 Problem.
A 2013 International Report has U.S. Universities collectively ranked #14. Thatjudgment is a bit harsh. Of America's 3,600+ BA-BS, MS, PhD colleges anduniversities, the U.S. Top 600 can hold their own in any international comparison.The problem is -- some states, like Florida, may not have any oftheir Higher-Ed schools ranked in the U.S.Top 600. Thesestates will have "untrainable" workforces and Third-World local economies in the 21st Century. As Florida does now!
science-based Learning Tools, Skills and Procedures
that are supported by Nobel Prize and National
Science Awards in Physiology and Medicine =
a.k.a., sTem-based schooling.
2)Replacing school "administration" with school
"management". Specifically, the implementation
of Enterprise Workflow Management that built America by "managing to get things done".
3)Replacing Educational Pedagogy with "Scholastic
Engineering" that can convert Discipline-driven
schooling into sTem-driven schooling.
4)Adding sTem-driven schooling can reduce the
cost of K-12 schooling by up to 40%, allowing for
expanding services without increasing a school
district's bottom line.
All students can benefit from sTem-driven schooling and begin to move toward productive employment in the 21st Century's Tech-sTem driven global economy. However, only 40% of the U.S. workforce will need to be tech-trainable. To be or not to be -- tech-trainable -- is a physiology question (a.k.a., Aptitude). An individual's APTITUDE for tech-trainability is based on their Cerebral Cortex's left vs. right brain-balance (The Human CPU).
Studentscan help themselves. Schools don't become tech-trainable -- students do. Early participants will get the best jobs. There is now a sTem-based test available for identifying brain-balance as it dictates each individual's aptitude for productive participation in Tech-sTem-driven industries. The jobs are there now. However, don't waste your time if "tech" is not your game.
