As an immigrant I’ve experienced multiple educational systems and I’ve come to the conclusion that the United States has a system that offers a wide range of opportunities for its students to succeed and become adults with great careers. In the Sept. 27 article, Dade, Broward get millions to fund science magnet programs, readers are informed that the federal government gave a few million dollars to Miami-Dade and Broward to invest in education. Is the educational system in the U.S. that bad that two districts would like to invest $22 million in science programs?
The U.S. debt is currently $16.9 trillion and growing and the government was recently shut down. I’m a student who plans on majoring in science, but I’d rather “suffer” not having multi-million dollar sponsored programs today than having to pay a larger amount of debt tomorrow.
