Strengthening Student Achievement
Despite a number of education reforms, student achievement in the U.S. has not improved significantly over the past 30 years. While a number of states and school districts have made advances, there is more work to be done – both inside and outside school hours – to fill our country’s skills gap and prepare students for the 21st Century workforce needs.
Schools are also an important place for ensuring that children receive the physical education and nutritious meals they necessary to grow up both physically and mentally fit. Council for a Strong America works at the state and federal level to boost results-based approaches to K-12 education in order to strengthen the U.S. economy, prevent crime, and widen the pool of military-eligible young adults.
