EDUCATION

Posted by vida

Presidential candidate John Edwards has outlined a sweeping education plan he calls, “Restoring the Promise of America’s Schools”.

The highlights of the plan include:

  • a radical overhaul of the ‘No Child Left Behind’ legislation,
  • an expansion of early education programs to prepare children for success in school,
  • an investment of substantial funds into teachers’ training and salaries,
  • the establishment of a ‘School Success Fund’ to help struggling schools.

Edwards emphasized that poor and rural schools would be of the highest priority in these broad education reforms, with the goal being that children from 4 years of age and older would receive a quality education in excellent schools from the best teachers. He has also proposed initiatives to provide adequate health care to children and to make college affordable for the majority of students.
