"A new global study of educational systems in major nations ranks U.S. 15-year-olds 14th in the world in reading skills, 17th in science and 25th — below average — in math."
I would like to see no more summer vacation... I know Americans are spoiled with them, but i have seen my child go back to school in August just to re-learn everything they forgot over the summer. Sure...parents can help their kids out by doing work with them over the summer, but how many parents actually do that?
How on earth will our country ever on track when we cannot peoperly educate our youths? All of them will be running our country one day...

I'm not in favor of Summer School. Kids need a break.
We need Merit pay for the good Teachers and we should weed out the ones who are just there for the paycheck.
Teacher's Unions should be abolished.
