On needed U.S. policy reforms regarding education, foreign policy and fossil fuels

Standard

“ The current preoccupation with learners as consumers of education, with education as a product, and with administrators as managers carving out efficiency and results from teachers and students (…) must be replaced by meaningful improvements in quality for all ”

“ …fifteen years of war (in the Middle East) have demonstrated that religious fundamentalism cannot be defeated militarily. Bombing these groups has created nothing but chaos, desperation and poverty – the conditions in which fundamentalism thrives ”

“ Our challenge now is twofold: transition entirely off of fossil fuels in the next twenty years, and build an economy that can prosper without them ”
