Experts say raise education levels to compete globally

House of Representatives Education Chairman Cecil Brown read Tucker’s study Standing on the Shoulder of Giants and said more efficient spending could help.

“We’ve got to plan over a long period of time to build up teacher pay to attract people and he already said we’re spending more than any of these major countries and we’re getting less for the money we’re spending. So we’ve got to sit down and analyze that and say why is that true?” said Brown.

The Education Reform Forum was held one day after the State Commission on Accreditation recommended ratings for each school district.
