Education bailout??

Begin rant.

Perhaps I am extraordinarily pessimistic today, but when are we going to bailout the educational system? When are we going to invest the same amount of time and resources into our future as we do into our economy? Last time I checked, education was critical to the wealth and advancement of our nation, yet by and large, its always placed on the back burner.

We are so concerned right now with what big CEO's are going to do now that their salaries are capped when the field of education only dreams of making six digits. Our priorities are really messed up, and it ticks me off. The day we really take a good hard look at the world of education, and start rewarding our educators the same way we do our CEO's will be the day that the US makes the best "bailout" decision ever.

End rant.
