Income Inequality vs. Education [View all]

Income inequality is a major problem in the US right now. The rich have gotten richer and the poor have gotten poorer for way too long. The problem is not with the economy as much as it is with education.

America was once the gold standard of education. We're now in a free-fall decline among industrialized nations.

I'm not an educator or an economist but I believe if America educated it's people as it should, income in-equality would recede naturally.

Education in America should be free to Americans.

It will cost a lot but it will also cost less than war.

What kind of country are we?
