NC Senator Steve Goss talked about how President-Elect Brack Obama’s new administration may effect education on the local level in his latest report from Raleigh.
Goss praised Obama’s selection for Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, who for a number of years has headed up the Chicago, Illinois School system.
Goss said he agreed with Obama when the President-Elect said, “Failing to improve classroom instruction is morally unacceptable” in an article by MSNBC.
After praising the Obama administration for working to improve the education system, Goss said he hopes the new administration gives local and state governments the power to fix their local education systems.
Goss said, “In the past, with the change of administrations in Washington, the old adage that ‘One size fits all’ has led to more failures than successes. Instead, give us the vision and the goals of what our overall education system should be to compete in this new world order. Then turn it over to the local communities. Let our counties, towns, and cities implement within the framework of the state's direction and the methods of teaching that of fits their communities.”
Goss then asked the new Secretary of Education to give us the vision, help us fund the institution, and let our teachers teach and our children.
Goss said, “Then, the E.O.G'S can become the G.O.E.S. (Good Old Education System).”
