It's so multifaceted. We absolutely must improve the quality of basic education, including real help for kids who are falling through the cracks. Next we need to offer our young people (older ones, too) a way to obtain the education that will lead to jobs -- not just loans. But why not have a service option similar to that enjoyed by teachers and health care professionals (i.e., we'll pay for your education if you agree to work x number of years in an area of need)? Right now, we have way too many job training projects for very low-paying jobs that will give people employment but not a way out of poverty.
