Policy Analysis of: Education (Higher Education for All Students)

“If we want America to lead in the 21st century, nothing is more important than giving everyone the best education possible — from the day they start preschool to the day they start their career”, said President Barack Obama. To prepare people for jobs of the future and help restore middle-class security we have to out-educate the world and that starts with a strong and healthy school system. There is no code or bill that has taken place yet to implement higher education, but President Barack Obama and his team have created several initiatives to help all students receive an education beyond high school. Helping middle class families afford college, trying to keep the cost down, strengthening Community Colleges, and Improving Transparency and Accountability are all the ways President Barack Obama, and his team plan to use to accomplish his goal in higher education. After interviewing a principal of a local elementary school she stated that, “higher education after high school should be a #1 priority in high school students.” She also felt that the students should be encouraged by their teachers, counselors, and school representatives to achieve their maximum education. More programs are needed to build a connection for students in high school and with local colleges/vocational schools that will encourage them to seek higher education.

President Obama and his team are working extremely hard to make college more accessible, affordable, and attainable for all families to receive the education and training needed for the jobs of today and tomorrow. Teachers and school officials all agree with the idea of a student obtaining a higher education. Middle-Class families that can’t afford a higher education will definitely be impacted by the new reforms
