If I were president, I would make our education system better and more thought out. Our education system in the United States hasn't been changed in about 200 years. America’s students have improved in math and science over the past 20 years, but we still remain behind students in many other nations.
To improve students math and science skills I would get rid of the common core, and replace it with a system that's based upon students individual education programs and not as a whole. We should focus educational spending on improving the school setting, not teacher raises. The U.S. spends more on education than any other country in the world but its graduation rate is far behind countries like South Korea, which has a better graduation rate (64%) than the United States has (43%).
My last suggestion to our future president would be to have schools not give out multiple standardized tests on one day, but give them out over a span of time. This would ensure students will do better on their tests. As president I would feel the need to improve our education system for the better of the students.
