5 Key Elements
True Implementation of these policies would mean a significant change in education for all students. Of course all systems are flawed and I could definitely see several drafts before a final product was made on how to approach all these ideas and it would be several years before we would even begin to see results but ideally this is what is wanted and needed by educators, parents and students.
By genuinely preparing all students to be 21st century learners through the content and giving them the skills they will need in the workforce we have potentially resolved unemployment issues and jobs being offered overseas or many tech jobs being occupied by people working in the U.S. on visas.
Guaranteeing students are being taught by competent teachers and states, districts and schools being held accountable for student learning could give opportunity carefully observe data to make real changes for improvement instead creating fear of job loss and/or finding short cuts (i.e. The Texas Miracle).
Out of the all the elements I believe the one that focuses on equality is the most important. By spreading out the funding to make basic need changes like holes in floors/ walls; enough updated text books for every child and getting the "good teachers" just to name a few we are giving these students and the community a sense of pride in their school and their learning. Simple changes can give a hole new perspective to the education system in general.
What I believe would be the second most important element is on preparation, mentoring and professional development of teachers. With these supportive changes in the career the number of teachers that leave the profession within the first few years will decrease eliminating this revolving door effect that only breaks down student's self- esteem and self worth.
Lastly, the modified curriculum to meet the individual student's need and authentic assessments and offers the biggest amount of support to students. This positive environment gives them the sense of security in a genuine classroom community.

I also think that we need to better prepare our youth to work in the 21st century. That is true that a lot of out tech jobs are getting sent overseas or being token by people working here on visas. I also think equality is very important because we need to make sure that there is an even playing field for all students to succeed. I also think that having the right support for educators is important to make these transitions.
