Transcript of Education.
“Over a third of America’s college students and over half of our minority students don’t earn a degree, even after six years,” -President Obama
In 2013, about one in five students did not graduate high school.
The U.S., which had some of the highest graduation rates of any developed country, now ranks 22nd out of 27 developed countries.
Vermont had the highest rate, with 91.4% graduating. And Nevada had the lowest with 57.8% of students graduating.
1 in 6 students attend a dropout factory. 1 in 3 minority students (32%) attend a dropout factory, compared to 8% of white students.
In the U.S., high school dropouts commit about 75% of crimes.
High school dropouts are about three times as likely as those who have finished high school to slip into poverty from one year to the next.
These were the main reasons 10th graders said as to why they dropped out of school:
-Did not like school
-Could not get along with teachers
-Could not get along with students
-Felt I didn’t belong
-Could not keep up with school work
-Was failing school
Historical Signifigance of Education
The Plauge of Student Debt
No Laughing Matter
About two thirds of bachelor's degree recopients borrow money to attend college, either from the govement or pricate lenders, accrding to a Department of Education Survey of 2007-8 graduates; the total number of borrowers is most likey higher since the survey does not track borrowing from family Members
By contrast, 45% of 1992-93 gradutes borrowed money; that survey included family borrowing as well as goverment and private loans
For all borrowers, the average debt in 2011 was $23,300, with 10% owing more than $54,000 and 3% more than $100,000, the Federal Reserve Banks of New York reports. Average debt for bachelor degree graduates who took out loans ranges frum under $10,000 at elite schools like Princeton and Williams College, which have plenty of wealthy students and enormous endowments, to nearly $50,000 at some private colleges with less affluent students and less financial aid
Elizabeth Warren: Warren’s bill has secured 58 yes votes, two short of the 60 needed to break the Republican filibuster of the legislation. The cost of the bill would be paid for through a tax on millionaires, a non-starter for Republicans.
“I’m all for tweaking it,” Warren said of the bill, soliciting suggestions from the other side of the aisle. “Come to us with a proposal. We’re willing to talk about it.”
Kristen Gilibrand: To address the burden faced by graduates struggling to repay their federal student loans, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand joined 15 of her colleagues in pushing for passage of the Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act, which includes Gillibrand’s proposal to allow those with outstanding federal student loan debt to refinance at lower interest rates. Many borrowers with outstanding student loans have interest rates of nearly 7 percent or higher for undergraduate loans, while students taking out new undergraduate loans pay a rate of 3.86 percent under the Bipartisan Student Loan Certainty Act passed by Congress last summer.
Advocates of Education

“I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves, (A)nd if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power."
"If Virtue & Knowledge are diffused among the People, they will never be enslav'd. This will be their great Security."
Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, February 12, 1779
"A Bible and a newspaper in every house, a good school in every district--all studied and appreciated as they merit--are the principal support of virtue, morality, and civil liberty."
The United States Department of Education is a Cabinet-level department of the United States government. Recreated by the Department of Education Organization Act and signed into law by President Jimmy Carter on October 17, 1979, it began operating on May 4, 1980.
In 1979, President Carter advocated for creating a cabinet-level Department of Education. Carter's plan was to transfer most of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare's education-related functions to the Department of Education Carter also planned to transfer the education-related functions of the departments of Defense, Justice, Housing and Urban Development, and Agriculture, as well as a few other federal entities. Among the federal education-related programs that were not proposed to be transferred were Headstart, the Department of Agriculture's school lunch and nutrition programs, the Department of the Interior's Indian education programs, and the Department of Labor's education and training programs.
Reagan: "Our leaders must remember that education doesn't begin with some isolated bureaucrat in Washington. It doesn't even begin with state or local officials. Education begins in the home, where it is a parental right and responsibility."
Bush: "Think about every problem, every challenge, we face. The solution to each starts with education.
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001is a United States Act of Congress that is a reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, which included Title I, the government's flagship aid program for disadvantaged students. NCLB supports standards-based education reform based on the premise that setting high standards and establishing measurable goals can improve individual outcomes in education.
"We must have high expectations for children who are more difficult to teach or who have fallen behind," Bush said. "Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would accept no less than an equal concern for every child in America, and neither will my administration."
“If we want to invest in the prosperity of our nation, we must invest in the education of our children so that their talents may be fully employed.” – President Bill Clinton
“Michelle and I are here only because we were given a chance at an education. I will not settle for an America where some kids don’t have that chance.” ~~ Barack Obama
Sesame Street was conceived in 1966 during discussions between television producer Joan Ganz Cooney and Carnegie Foundation vice president Lloyd Morrisett. Their goal was to create a children's television show that would "master the addictive qualities of television and do something good with them", such as helping young children prepare for school. After two years of research the newly formed Children's Television Workshop (CTW) received a combined grant of $8 million ($51 million in 2014 dollars) from the Carnegie Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the U.S. Federal Government to create and produce a new children's television show. The program premiered on public broadcasting television stations on November 10, 1969. It was the first preschool educational television program to base its contents and production values on laboratory and formative research. Initial responses to the show included adulatory reviews, some controversy, and high ratings. By its 40th anniversary in 2009, Sesame Street was broadcast in over 120 countries, and 20 international versions had been produced.

The American Promise of Education
is the persistent underperformance of African American and Latino children
when compared to their white counterparts on standardized tests. It emerges before
kindergarten and persists through all grade levels and reveals itself in discrepant graduation and dropout rates.
The Achievement Gap
"to educate a man is to unfit him to be a slave" - Frederick Douglass
"the advancement and diffusion of knowledge is the only guardian of true liberty"- Pres. James Madison
The Statistical Truth Behind the Achievement Gap
the National Association for Educational Progress
reported that only
African American children are consistently

On standardized tests...
These test scores are more than just numbers on paper. They are
warning signs of adverse life outcomes including higher rates of
of African American fourth and
eighth graders performed
at or above proficient levels on national reading tests.
