DATE :  Wednesday, November 14th, 2012   ABSTRACT :  With the addition of 3 billion new capitalists in the world’s free economic system, there are bound to be winners and losers going forward.  The U.S., which had the best primary, secondary and university education systems in the world in the mid-20th century, has fallen back in primary and secondary rankings, and now faces stiff competition at the university level.  Economic competitiveness depends on fixing K-12 education—where we have studied the problem for over 50 years, but have had only isolated examples of improvement—and continuing to support our research universities that are the backbone of new ideas and smart students, the two things that create valuable new businesses going forward.  The talk will cover a few suggestions for improving our Nation’s education and overall competitiveness.
