ID, MT, WY, UT, ND, SD, IN, AND MS
Research shows that young children’s earliest learning
experiences can have powerful long-term effects on their
cognitive and emotional development, school achievement,
and later life outcomes.

ensure our Childrens success for His or Her Future
Also we would like Every State to increase enrollment to 100%
Goal to Improve The American Education System

more applicants.The policy attracted applicants who would

Goal to Improve The American Education System
In 2011, 20 percent of high school students were bullied at school, and 33 percent reported being involved in a physical fight in the last year.
In one month, nearly 6 percent of high schoolers stayed home because they felt unsafe at or on their way to school.
More than 7 percent of 9th through 12th graders reported being threatened or injured with a weapon on school property at least once in the last year. An additional 6 percent admitted to bringing a weapon to school for protection.
In 2010 there were more than 800,000 nonfatal school victimizations of children and teens ages 12 to 18. Almost 500,000 of these occurrences were thefts.
Drug possessions at school more than doubled from 2005 to 2011. Teachers confirm that violence may not be spiking, but records are being kept much more accurately than in the past.

Race to the top
• Achievement is measured only by a students’ performance on annual multiple-choice reading and math tests.
Race to the top
“America will not succeed in the 21st century unless we do a far better job of educating our sons and daughters… And the race starts today. I am issuing a challenge to our nation’s governors and school boards, principals and teachers, businesses and non-profits, parents and students: if you set and enforce rigorous and challenging standards and assessments; if you put outstanding teachers at the front of the classroom; if you turn around failing schools – your state can win a Race to the Top grant that will not only help students outcompete workers around the world, but let them fulfill their God-given potential.” President Barack Obama July 24, 2009
