Tough Choices or Tough Times

The National Center on Education and the Economy has released a report -- "Tough Choices or Tough Times" -- that focuses on the changing skills required for U.S. workers and argues for a significant shift in priorities for the nation's K-12 education system.
 
Sharon Lynn Kagan, Virginia and Leonard Marx Professor of Early Childhood and Family Policy at Teachers College, is a major contributor to the report's recommendations concerning early childhood education.
 
TC President Susan Fuhrman calls the report "an exciting vision of a reformed and revitalized American education system that "has many important ideas that should generate considerable debate and are worthy of serious consideration."
