Education in America
Education has been a prolific part of the United States of America and every other country alike. For a country to maintain vigorous economic growth and advance in technology, it has to have a respectable academic system, and the United States has done magnificently well in those areas. The country has produced many scholars with in-depth knowledge in science, technology, and criminal law, with reputable teaches that help students achieve those educational feat. But what we have seen in the last few years is that the United States has drastically dropped among countries with great students in mathematics and science.

In addition, government should consider stopping children from working for income while they are still in high school. Students that are already earning income while in high school will probably care less about college education that is very significant for financial stability. People with higher education also tend to stay out of crimes, at least white collar crimes, compares to the number of inmates today that does not have an Associate Degree.
Parents also have some key impact on restoring education in America to the very best it formerly was. Children need to be made aware of how important education is their future.

In addition, children who receive such academic guidance from their parents would keep those lessons with them and pass it on to their offspring. It would help raise education awareness among students and teaches children how crucial academic is to not only their future, but also their society.
Even though government, teachers, and parents are all working collectively for educational reform, students have most obligations to an improved education. They are the one that are directly impacted by the standard of academics they receive in school. Students should learn how to give more respect to the teachers that are doing all their best to provide them with the best education possible. Without them, I wonder how they could achieve their dream of becoming doctors or lawyers. Teachers are even sometimes more respected towards students than vice-versa. Schools should put more emphasis on ethical behavior, similarly to the one put on mathematics and science, and teach students how to accept and...
