Problems Facing American Education

Lately in the US news we have seen quite a bit about education issues. Some lawmakers want to even eliminate the Department of Education. What's up with that? There also is much controversy about teachers and teachers' unions. Yet for the money that has been thrown at this problem over many years, nothing ever seems to improve. It most likely is not the textbooks, as it would only make sense that educational materials should keep getting better.

I think it must be a lack of motivation on the part of students, or maybe the fact that the younger generation is lost in many ways. Good educational information can even be found online, and there is so much available via other forms of electronic media.
