Outlook for America to Compete for Quality Jobs Has Deteriorated, Says National Academies

Posted on September 29, 2010. Filed under: policy, science & technology, society | Tags: , , |

In spite of the efforts of those in both the government and the private sector, the outlook for America to compete for quality jobs has further deteriorated in the past five years.  This according to its follow-on report Rising above the Gathering Storm Revisited: Rapidly Approaching Category 5.   The executive summary can be downloaded at no charge from the NAS website.

The nation’s public school system has shown little sign of improvement, particularly in math and science, and the government has lost latitude to address the problem due to the growth of the national debt.  (Though, in my opinion, it was too slow to react in earlier years when more opportunity existed.)

This is a sobering report, and one we should all take time to understand. –nks
