Education Modernization

Engineering Class

Our education system is lagging behind when compared to the rest of the world, which is making changes in light of the industries, technologies, and global needs. Our schools have a crippling infrastructure and lack modernization. Colleges are still out of reach of many and do not provide enough seats to accommodate our growing needs. We need to build and redefine our education system for the next generation to compete globally. We are rated as B+ for our education system and are currently in the 11th spot within the United States.

 

We need to enhance our education system both within California and at the country level to nurture leaders, inventors, and innovators of tomorrow.

  • Making education more relevant to the 21st century: This includes teaching students the skills they need to succeed in the workforce, such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration. Focus on STEAM programs and ensure there is enough financial support for hands-on projects that leads to creative thinking and problem-solving. Focus on science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics is key for the foundational growth of our children and a necessary skill for innovation in the modern world.

  • Enhance school infrastructure and facilities: We need better laboratories, computer rooms, tools, equipment, etc. to provide effective education. Clean and safe classrooms with adequate safety and sanitation are key to success.

 

  • Public-Private Partnership: We need better collaboration and partnership with the corporations to provide sponsorships and donations that can assist in additional funding.

 

  • Adequate compensation: Teachers define the foundation for our kids and we need to ensure they are adequately compensated and are able to devote full attention to the growth of the children.

 

  • Increase in number of community colleges: More colleges to provide advanced education and also additional community colleges to provide alternate education.

 

  • Making education more affordable: This includes reducing the cost of college and making it more accessible to students from all backgrounds. Subsidized and discounted interest rates on student loans and a system for equitable distribution of grants and scholarships.  

 

  • Priority Admission: Opportunity for each California student to get priority in admission to a state college.

  • Improving access to education: This includes making sure that all students have access to high-quality early childhood education, and that they are able to stay in school and graduate.
