    Teachers who inspire a 'can do' culture, so whatever a child's home life is like you can help them to be aspirational and take the journey they want and have the skills to pick themselves up again when something goes wrong.

    An Individualized Education Program for all students (as much as possible anyway) while maintaining a base competency for reading, writing, and arithmetic.

    Get rid of grade levels - you move on in a subject when you pass.  Less lecture - more student discussion, debate, research projects.  Just a couple of thoughts.

    Learning Opportunities that don't currently exist - such as Leadership classes, goal setting lessons, understanding priorities, being proactive, assertiveness training, listening skills....

    The Texas Board of Education........NOT

    We desperately need to get rid of the politics of education.  Just not sure how to do it.

      Here's an idea, it's simple, great and easy to implement - get rid of the Department of Education and make the educational system more free-market.

      Our country has been pouring money into education for the last 50 years at least and all that it's gotten us is lower test scores and lower preforming students.  It takes the parents out of the equation and keeps bad teachers and schools around when they otherwise would have been gone long before this.

      Let parents choose what they want to do with their kids and get them and the children involved and you'll see a better education system in America.

    Somehow, some way, students must become better readers.  The ability to read well is necessary in every discipline, even math and science.  From pre-school on, parents must get involved: reading to their children, cutting down t.v. time, taking their kids to the library, having family reading time, etc.  The schools cannot do it alone.
