Candidate discusses educational shortcomings

from Joplin Independent

Audrey Chubb was motivated to run for the Riverton USD 404 School Board in Kansas. after learning the plight of education in our country. Our educational system is in a state of crisis. Twenty years ago the United States was number one in education around the world. Now we are ranked 33 out of 37 countries in reading, 27 out of 37 in math and 22 out of 37 in science. International test scores for 2009 show Shanghai leading in math and South Korea leading in reading. Our educational system has been "dummied down." As a result we are not preparing our children for the world of today, let alone tomorrow. For the first time in history this generation is less educated than the generation before! more
