If we are to survive as a viable country in a highly competitive twenty-first
century global marketplace, we must TRANSFORM the culture of our educational system.
We need a learning community with the courage to create change rather than tolerate change.
Change is tough. Timely change is even tougher. We are at a crossroads.
We must serve our students well, treasure and honor our teachers, reward corporate partners,
engage policy makers, operate with integrity, and contribute to systemic reform, to the
community,and to the world.
Transforming the culture of our educational system is the most important and pressing change
that we must initiate and execute. We must give every student, every teacher, and every
educator the opportunity to be more, give more, and do more for this Land of Opportunity,
the Greatest Country on Earth, the United States of America!" Click here to continue reading Dr. Jbeily's views about the status of education in the United States.
