Changing Education (Guest Post by Youth Leader Arooj Ahmad)

The need for a change in education is evident. But what’s the practical solution? It is easy to point out the flaws of the current system, but it is much more difficult to come up with relevant, applicable solutions. And it is even more difficult for policy makers to bring about change.

But it has to be done.

The gaping flaws of America’s education system have to be dealt with. Students, teachers, administrators, and parents have to step out of their comfort zones and advocate for change. It has to be a collective effort that is backed by logical reasoning, practicality, and relevance.

It is my hope to not only spread the need for educational change, but to offer a practical, non-radical solution that can actually be implemented.

I encourage everyone to voice their opinion, criticize, and send a message to our decision makers in the US Department of Education.
