Obama – Money Alone Will Not Solve Education Problems
On Monday morning’s Today show, President Obama revealed that he is of the school that money alone will not be able to solve our nations educational problems.
The president also said that though per-student spending has gone up in the country, student performance has gone down, which shows that “money without reform will not fix the problem.” (Yahoo!)
A very wise statement indeed. As Americans, we can’t just expect to throw money at a problem and expect to solve it. Just because it worked with the war on terror, it doesn’t mean it will work with education or healthcare.
