The NAACP report, titled, “Finding Our Way Back to First: Reclaiming World Leadership by Educating All America’s Children,” identifies some of the solutions necessary for providing high-quality education to all children in the United States. The report was drafted in response to concerns that the U.S. is losing its competitive edge in the education spectrum on a global scale.
- Improving kindergarten preparedness through effective preschool programs
- Improving teacher training for more effective classroom instruction
- Longer school days that allow for more instructional time in the classroom
- More efficient targeting of funding, to provide for the neediest students
Duncan went on to state that a common enemy for all people in the U.S. is “academic failure.” To combat this enemy, Duncan says he is looking forward to working further with the NAACP in the area of education reform for all American students.
