America, a land known for its vast landscapes, bountiful resources, and pioneering spirit. But beyond its physical attributes and natural wonders lies a resource far greater and more powerful than anything else – the American people and their capacity for innovation.

Throughout history, America has been built on the backs of innovators, dreamers, and individuals who dared to defy conventional wisdom. From Thomas Edison's invention of the light bulb to Henry Ford's assembly line, these visionaries have shaped the course of American progress and propelled the nation to greatness.

However, in recent years, the full potential of America's greatest natural resource has been stifled. A culture of conformity and a fear of failure has crept into the minds of many, limiting the willingness to take risks and explore uncharted territories. It's time to unleash the power of innovation once again and reclaim America's status as a global leader.

The Importance of Innovation

Innovation is the lifeblood of progress. It fuels economic growth, creates jobs, and drives societal change. Without it, civilizations stagnate, and nations fall behind. America's history is a testament to the power of innovation, as it has propelled the nation forward time and time again.

But what exactly is innovation? It is more than just inventing new gadgets or developing groundbreaking technologies. It is a mindset that embraces change, challenges the status quo, and seeks creative solutions to complex problems. Innovation is about creating something new, something better, and pushing the boundaries of what is possible.

The Current State of Innovation in America

While America has a storied history of innovation, there are concerns that its creative spirit is being hindered. The rise of bureaucracy, the fear of failure, and a lack of investment in research and development have all contributed to a decline in innovation. The recent global pandemic has further highlighted the need for innovative thinking to tackle complex challenges such as healthcare, climate change, and economic inequality.

However, all hope is not lost. Across the country, there are pockets of innovation taking place. In Silicon Valley, tech start-ups are reimagining industries and disrupting traditional business models. In universities and research institutions, scientists are making breakthroughs in fields such as renewable energy, artificial intelligence, and biotechnology. The potential for innovation is still alive and well, waiting to be unleashed.

Overcoming the Barriers to Innovation

If America is to fully harness its greatest natural resource, certain barriers need to be addressed. One such barrier is the fear of failure. In a society that often values success above all else, failure is seen as a sign of weakness. However, failure is an essential part of the innovation process. It provides valuable feedback, teaches resilience, and drives individuals to learn from their mistakes and keep pushing forward.

Another barrier is the fear of change. Innovation requires a willingness to embrace new ideas and adapt to a rapidly changing world. America's education system, for example, must adapt to equip students with the skills needed for the jobs of the future. Similarly, businesses should foster a culture that encourages creativity, risk-taking, and collaboration.

Investing in the Future

Lastly, to unleash America's greatest natural resource, there needs to be a renewed commitment to investing in research and development. This includes increased funding for scientific research, incentivizing innovation through tax breaks and grants, and strengthening partnerships between academia, industry, and government.

Additionally, creating an environment that encourages entrepreneurship and supports small businesses will foster innovation at the grassroots level. Access to affordable healthcare, quality education, and a safety net for those who dare to take risks will empower individuals to pursue their innovative ideas and bring them to fruition.

The Future of American Innovation

Innovation is not a finite resource; it is infinite and ever-evolving. America has the potential to once again become a hotbed of creativity and innovation. By unleashing its greatest natural resource – the American people – and creating an environment that fosters innovation, the nation can overcome any challenge, lead the world into the future, and continue its legacy as a land of pioneers.

It's time to unleash America's greatest natural resource and harness the power of innovation. Together, we can build a brighter future for all.

America’s K-12 public schools are under attack by profiteers and politicians, often working together, to denigrate and destroy public schools in order to replace them with loosely regulated and poorly performing charter schools. They are taking millions of dollars out of classroom budgets and paying enormous management fees to their corporate management teams. But their greed doesn’t stop there. In the name of accountability, these corporate giants are testing our children instead of teaching them and reaping the huge profits for the testing companies. We don’t need to replace our public schools with charter schools. We need to take the valuable lessons learned from the best of the charter schools and implement those practices in our public schools. This book documents the need to fix our public schools and provides a proven model for transforming them.

This book has three recurring themes:
1.Education is not the total solution to anything, but it’s a part of the solution to everything.
2.Excellence is not enough unless it is equitably available to all students.
3.We have tried countless reforms and most of them had only a minor impact. It’s now time to implement a systemic national educational transformation.

Many books on education select and focus on a single topic and provide an in-depth analysis within that domain. They are written by social scientists or people with PhDs in education. As a result, they are usually focused on a specific silo of information. In education, the silos include curriculum, facilities, technology, pedagogy, professional development, instructional design, etc. Other books are written by journalists who take on the whole system with broad, sweeping generalizations. It reminds me of the old explanation of the difference between scientists and engineers.

“A scientist is a person who learns more and more about less and less until he knows everything about nothing. An engineer is a person who learns less and less about more and more until he knows nothing about everything.”

I tend to take the engineering approach, and hopefully have stopped well short of knowing nothing. This book examines the broad spectrum of K-12 public education.

As you will see from reading this book, improving K-12 public education is the single most important issue this country faces. Most Americans who are not directly involved in education don’t have the luxury of being able to focus on the K-12 education issue. What I have tried to do in this book is provide an overview of the vast array of excellent work done by others that has contributed to my understanding of the issues and knit it all together with some thoughts of my own.

Readers of this book will gain a deep understanding of what is wrong with the present K-12 public education model and what is needed to transform it. Transforming K-12 education is an economic necessity. This is not new news. But, the fact that it is old news, and nothing has been done that has significantly improved the situation should be seen as a big RED FLAG!

Some education books appear to have a motive beyond improving education. They promote a particular point of view in support of a lightly veiled agenda. Some books promote a political agenda like bashing teachers’ unions, or a financial agenda like promoting charter schools and testing. This book promotes a solution to America’s poorly performing K-12 public education system using existing facilities, existing teachers, existing administrators, and is implementable within existing budgets using existing proven best practices. I am working with a group that has a proven solution that fits those criteria. All of the elements of the solution are proven best practices. We have selected a large portion of the student-centered and organizational best practices, integrated them into a solution and implemented it.
