As a teacher, Snyder has first-hand knowledge of our nation’s educational shortcomings. America has the most technologically advanced education in the world, and tools for the most outdated curriculum in western society. It is embarrassing that we are still teaching our children to think along career paths suited for the 1950’s during the 21st century. Our country is the largest financial system in the world, based on capitalism within a free market society, yet we do not teach our children even the basics of finance, let alone the fundamentals of how to prosper within our own country.
To win the war on poverty, we must teach modern avenues of prosperity.
