How to improve the K-12 education system in the United States of America has been a very discursive issue over the past few decades which have caused many debates and discussions.

The United States can no longer be falling behind on education or else the percentage of students failing to graduate high school and not attending college will just increase therefore it will create a decline in the economic status of the country as education has become the weapon and power to any society or community’s success. For example if you compare major developed countries such as Singapore and Japan you can see that their main focus is educating their kids and public in order to sustain a strong background.
