This Steve Barr speech on the shortcomings of the failing American educational system discusses how schools have changed over time and the ways by which floundering learning organizations can be easily revamped.
As the founder of Green Dot Public Schools, the speaker is devoted to improving secondary education in the state of California by promoting the importance of improving public education. He argues that private schools should be made illegal and that a successful educational experience should be just as accessible to the super poor as it is to the super rich.
By incorporating the same benefits and structures that exist in expensive, privatized education into the public school system, the speaker suggests that the student drop-out rate will decrease and inner city school kids will be just as successful as those in private schools.
