Education and National Security #EIA12

I just returned from the Excellence in Action 2012 National Summit. The content and level of discussion at the conference was wonderful but one forum stood out to me which I hadn’t fully considered and that was the section on Education and National Security. Below is a link to the video from C-SPAN of Condoleezza Rice giving an impassioned call to reform American Education because it is in our best national security interest to do so.

Watch the video here.

Condoleezza Rice and Joel Klein talked about the report they co-authored, and had a discussion on the links between national security and education reform. Other highlights of the discussion included higher standards in education, and choice in education systems.
