Public Schools Oversee Personal Development

public-teacher-and-studentThe U.S. public school system is immense in size. It is an essential component in building a stable future for America’s youth and also a strong U.S. economy. Many Americans have been educated in the public school system as well as in State colleges and universities where tuition and fees were more affordable for in-state residents.

In K-12 public schools, meeting funding challenges has been difficult for taxpayers. While this challenge remains a distinct concern, America’s schools persevere in meeting the educational needs of their children, teens, and young adults. The success of the public school system is based on the enormous collective effort of hundreds of thousands of teachers, support staff, school administrators, and governmental leaders.

Critics, many of whom make valid points, suggest that the public school system has been negatively impacted by the gradual disempowering of educators in the classroom. What remains a universal truth is that teachers must be allowed to effectively manage their classroom and to create an environment that is fully conducive to learning. School Principals and area Superintendents must also be allowed to craft policies and procedures for running local public schools without undue interference from groups that ultimately undermine the authority of career educators.

For over 100 years, the public school system has served a vital role in the cognitive and emotional development of America’s youth. The rapid emergence of quality private schools has been a natural extension of the need for additional education options. Private schools offer unique benefits of their own, and they are meeting the growing need for a different type of structured learning environment. Both public and private schools shape the future of America by shaping the young minds that will one day lead the country.
