Eric Fingerhut on Education


Invest in the human capital of education

The key to reviving a struggling economy is to invest in education. The most valuable asset of the United States has always been its "human capital." We must encourage the entrepreneurial spirit at our colleges and universities and ensure that our workforce remains the most highly-skilled in the world. We also need to finally put an end to the school-funding crisis and develop a system of fair and adequate funding for our primary and secondary schools.

Better teacher pay; expanded early education

I support an intensive effort to assure that high quality, certified teachers are available in every classroom. This effort would include improvements in teacher training, increase the evaluation of teacher performance and increase salaries. I also support expanding early childhood education.
