Recently Host of the show Ronnie Das asked the current and 44th President of the United States Barack Obama a few question on education.
Thoughts and Questions on Education…
In an increasingly interconnected world students need the resources to compete in global markets with fresh ideas, innovation, and the ability to manage sustainability.
In what ways has your administration worked on opportunities to provide students the education necessary for them to be leaders in the global economy?
Today has the potential to create a positive change in the course of history, but another day will come and the youth will be one day older, so with the potential of today have we prepared them for tomorrow. Developing solutions in education requires firm commitments and the proper infrastructure of educational curriculum to prepare students and young professionals to become leaders.
What are some of the current obstacles in our education system and how can we strengthen the No Child Left Behind Act with strategic management to help failing or “left behind” schools?
As we move towards new frontiers in science and technology it is important to nurture the potential of the youth with the knowledge and understanding of every generation prior.
Why is encouraging education important to ensure success and strengthen our country? How will the future of America be shaped by the education we give our youth today?
Creating a society that responsibly takes ownership of the world we have all contributed to with the highest standards of moral excellence and the values we share is an idea we can all get behind.
President Barack Obama (Friday August 3rd, 2012):
We’d like to thank the Obama administration for taking the time to listen and respond to these questions and hope we can get great insight like this in the future on issues like the environment and community.
Green Yourself Tip: College Counts. Get an education, but make an educated decision on the costs. Going to an accredited college or university remains an excellent investment, yet everyday students are finding themselves swimming in debt and almost every week there is another article on how the cost of college is becoming prohibitively expensive for too many American families.
A student loan is a financed investment, with monthly loan payments to prove it so planning is the key to a successful future from a higher education. Take time with your family to understand the costs and benefits of a higher education and create a visual spreadsheet or a Financial Aid Shopping Sheet to categorize costs.
The Financial Aid Shopping Sheet is the culmination of a joint effort between the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Department of Education to provide individuals with critical information about their financial decision to attend college in a clear, concise, and standardized format that facilitates easy comparisons across institutions.
You shouldn’t be scared of going to college because of the price (financial aid, grants, scholarships, trusts, and all sorts of options exist to make it affordable), but understand the commitment your making before graduating.
So now that your educated in education options, boundless opportunities exist to create and learn for a better world. Best of Luck!
