    Obama Educational Standards

    by Ashley Chi and Justin Park

    At a meeting with our nation’s governors on Feb. 22, President Barack Obama pledged to raise the standards for primary and secondary education to better prepare American children for college and the global workplace. He outlined new steps in a redesigned Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) that implements better teacher preparation, upgraded classroom instruction, and challenging assessments. They plan to do this by redesigning the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) that was introduced under former President George Bush.

    In 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson passed the ESEA. The ESEA provides equal access to education authorizes federally funded education programs that are administered by the states. In 2002, Congress amended ESEA and reauthorized it as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). Now, the Obama administration will be looking back at the original ESEA and making amends to meet the standards of today’s education.

    The original requirements set by President Bush required that all state school students achieve proficiency in their state examinations by 2013. President Obama altered the requirements to state that all students who attend high schools throughout the US graduate from high school without any repeated years of education. The current NCLB also funds primary and secondary education while forbidding the passing of a national curriculum in which all states must keep uniform to. The funds are authorized for professional educational development, instructional materials, resources to support education programs, and parental involvement promotion.

    President Obama's plan for the new ESEA is to require all states that they have college and career ready standards in reading and mathematics, new funding for educational purposes, and encouraging states and school districts to better enforce teacher preparation practices and programs to teaching of college and career-ready standards. President Obama also plans to enforce the Race to the Top, which is a competition with a prize amount of $1.35 billion to the state that achieves college and career-ready students the earliest.

    States have two options: They can either conform to the standards already drafted by the government association, or they can develop their own college-ready program that would have to demonstrate that students who meet the standards can enter the state college system without taking remedial courses. 48 states have already opted to take this path. Freshman Anna Wang said, “Obama’s plan to reform education standards will be a long term goal, and something that everyone has to work towards.”

    Acts like these that are passed by our US government look to improve almost all of the US' schools, and raise the bar for our education standards in order to provide denizens of the US a country that is once again, one of the top nations in the world education-wise. President Barack Obama summed it up simply when he said, “America’s prosperity has always rested on how well we educate our children – but never more so than today.”

In 2002, Congress amended ESEA and reauthorized it as the NCLB. Now, the Obama administration will be looking back at the original ESEA and making amends to meet the standards of today’s education after a study revealed that American children lag behind when globally compared.

    The original requirements set by President Bush required that all state school students achieve proficiency in their state examinations by 2013. President Obama altered the requirements to state that all students who attend high schools throughout the US graduate from high school without any repeated years of education. The current NCLB also funds primary and secondary education while restricting the passing of a uniform national curriculum. The funds are authorized for professional educational development, instructional materials, resources to support education programs, and parental involvement promotion.

    President Obama's plan for the new ESEA is to require all states that they have college-and career-ready standards in reading and mathematics, new funding for educational purposes, and encouraging states and school districts to better enforce teacher preparation practices and programs for reaching college career-ready standards. President Obama also plans to enforce the Race to the Top, which is a competition with a prize amount of $1.35 billion to the state that achieves college and career-ready students the earliest.

    States have two options: They can either conform to the standards already drafted by the government association, or they can develop their own college-ready program that would have to demonstrate that students who meet the standards can enter the state college system without taking remedial courses. Though the Obama administration is still working on the precise definitions of “ready” and “not-ready” standards, 48 states have already opted to draft their own educational standards. With “zero” complaints coming from governors, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said, “All the governors understand…[that] we have to educate our way to a better economy.”

    Acts like these that are passed by our US government look to improve almost all of the US' schools, and raise the bar for our education standards in order to provide denizens of the US a country that is once again, one of the top nations in the world education-wise.
