Education: Dumb And Dumber

One of the biggest tragedies of this country is our politicians, and many of our citizens, look at education as an expense rather than an investment. We think of long range planning covering an election cycle. Countries like China think out 50 or 100 years.

The most important investment we can make for the future of our families and our country is education. By 2030 China will have graduated 200,000,000 college graduates, which is more than our total work force. At the same time our defense budget is 5 times the size of China and is equal to the next 13 largest defense budget countries in the world.

Isn't there something wrong with this? Investing in education will not only increase our GDP but will also decrease expenditures we make to help the impoverished and fight crime. DUMB!!
