28th Amendment to Fix Education
28th Amendment to Fix Education
There are thousands of devoted parents, brilliant kids, and passionate teachers in America. Unfortunately, their countless efforts to acquire a well rounded education has been thwarted by the inadequate, poorly organized American education system. Since the implementation of EASEAS, the first federal education policy, in 1964 and the creation of the Federal Department of Education in 1979, the American education system has been getting slightly worse every year. Ever since, there have been no significant changes to improve education nationwide. Why?
The four essential elements and crucial components that any education institution has to have in order to build a strong education structure do not exist in the United States, either at the federal and local state governments: control, responsibility, accountability, and job fulfillment. Precisely, the 10th amendment does not constitutionally recognize which branch of government is responsible for those four main vital ingredients, resulting in a very disorganized education system that is well-known for blame games, campaign promises, and partisan agendas.
The entire country has attempted a multitude of solutions with policies and measures to try and strengthen the education system during the past 50 years. However, approved federal laws, state agendas, and local initiatives have failed to positively impact the nation's education system. The United States used to be number one in education, yet now we are the lowest amongst the top 25 industrialized nations. A majority of students in grade schools are behind in math, science, writing, reading, and technology knowledge compared to other nations. More than 78% of college graduates in America were unable to qualify for entry level jobs with their related degrees, and had to resort to working in assembly lines, fast food, services sectors, clerical laborers, and etc. to stay afloat.
No doubt, younger generations, consisting of millions of students, have been negatively affected by America’s ineffective, loosely designed education system and as a result, putting America’s future at risk.
As a school volunteer with more than 25 years of experience, I strongly believe that by now, there are absolutely no more options for the United States to correctly fix its broken and ineffective education systems except for my proposed idea: grant the four missing components needed for education to the local state government with an official constitutional amendment.
The US Constitution has had 27 amendments for everything so far, but there is no amendment for education at all. It’s extremely difficult to change the US Constitution but I am asking the American people for a historic approval to make it possible. I would need 150 million supporters in the next 25 years.
As young American people grow up along with effective, sound education system as they can be ready to rebuild America after the 28th Amendment to Fix Education becomes a national laws. I strongly believe that too.
Together we will prevail. We no longer want to see our children and grandchildren being put at risk with broken promises year after year, election after election. An unimaginable change is needed to start an education revolution in America. Period.
We can improve the American education system and as a result improve the livelihood of future generations: ===> SIGN + SUPPORT + SHARE this online petition: 28th Amendment to Fix Education.
Thank you all in advance!
