How to Improve the United States Education System contains inspiration and advice from more than 30 of the nations most accomplished university presidents, policy makers, and business leaders. While each story is unique, their messages are universal. They have learned the power of working toward the greater good to address the challenges within the United States education system.
Noam Chomsky, American linguist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, and historian, said, “The whole educational and professional training system is a very elaborate filter, which just weeds out people who are too independent, and who think for themselves, and who don’t know how to be submissive, and so on – because they’re dysfunctional to the institutions.” The debate around how to improve the education system in the United States is a fraught, complicated one with incredibly high stakes.
