This week on Life Full Circle Radio, we will delve into the sleeping giant that some would call the albatross around the neck of America. Our struggling educational system.
As a country which has been known for its abilities to create the thinkers and inventors that have led the world for the last 100 years, we have quickly become the financiers instead of the creators of industry. That is an unsustainable direction that has to be changed. Why? Because, while we still have some of the best colleges in the world, the foreign exchange student is getting their education from America and taking their skills to their homelands to develop our competition for the next 100 years.
There are some out there that would say, “who cares!” Those may be the same people who are not for immigration reform either. Well look at it this way. Would you invite people to your house week in and week out for dinner and not eventually ask them to do dishes every once in a while or take out the trash? Oh by the way, while they are there, they always take a plate home (not paper, one of the real ones), and charges you to do so. Well that’s what happens when we don’t incentivize foreign students to contribute to our nations society. Well, that is whats happening now. Immigrants see the value in our education system (coming to dinner), but not in staying to help build our nation (cleaning up or taking out the trash.) Here’s the caveat, we incentivize them to do so, with tax subsidies, work visas and by shipping jobs overseas under the guise of profitability.
You might be saying “Whoa Miguel, where are you going with this?” Here’s my point. That’s the market. We are not developing our own children and adult citizenry through education to compete against the world with our minds, so we compete with our money (national debt) and our muscle/military (more national debt), all while we self medicate with consumerism (more personal debt.)
It is time to for us to invest in ourselves, by better educating our citizens and have a fair fight with the world on the stage of innovation and productivity. While we are waiting to buy $315 Lebrons, made in China, they put such a heavy tax on a Jeep(made in America), that they charge almost $200,000 to own one there.
Tomorrow on Life Full Circle Radio, we will dig into this subject. Join us for the discussion!
