Alex Sanders on Education

Education is preparation for citizenship & earning a living

Preparation for the duties of citizenship is one of the objectives of education. Preparation for earning a living is another, and the third purpose is making as much of yourself as possible.

The flow of tax dollars to higher education has diminished over the years and continues to diminish. Schools have replaced tax dollars with the fastest growing special tax in America: tuition. The rising cost of tuition threatens the greatest accomplishment in America: access.
