OUR TIME DAILY TRANSLATION
We've heard you say it many times: "Politics is like a foreign language." Well, we agree.
Each week, we summarize, simplify, and interpret different major news stories and how they affect our generation. We'll give you our take, and you can decide for yourself.
Nations with emerging economies, such as China and India, are investing in education and infrastructure for their future workers, while America continues to ignore serious issues in its education and healthcare systems.
50% of children in the U.S. receive no early childhood education, and more than half of U.S. college students drop out without receiving a degree.
WHY WE SHOULD CARE
In this increasingly global economy, every child must be equipped not only to perform, but to succeed among international competition for employment. The time is now, and the country’s future financial stability depends on it.
OUR TIME OPINION
Our policy leaders need to stop burdening the future workforce with insurmountable debt and refocus their energies on investment in education and expansion of workforce opportunities.
