Education is critical, but its current limitations and shortcoming are staggering in what they aren't providing. The No Child Left Behind Act of the 90s is about to meet its deadline without its desired goal anywhere in sight. More and more students enter college without meeting the minimum standards. But more than that is the issue that even if students got the desired 'education' it still falls 80% short of the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to achieve. We will talk about the 80% that is missing, dispel the myth that an education ensures greater income over a lifetime than without it, how outmoded high schools and colleges are, the more than common poor match made between student and career, the major pitfalls of accreditation, and much more. So be there to come to a better understanding how you can help yourself, your child, and your nation address this important issue.
