In Florida, Higher Education Priorities Questioned
My wife and I spent most of the last three years in China, and one thing that hit us again and again was how seriously the Chinese take education. My wife, who had given up her teaching career in the United States because Florida public schools paid so little, made excellent money as an English tutor for children in Shanghai and Hong Kong. In those places, parents eagerly pay for premium pre-K instruction or to lengthen their kids’ already demanding school day with after-school lessons. FCIR.com

How Florida is helping build a ‘grad nation’
The demographic profile of the United States is changing. You could say it’s catching up with Miami. The most recent Census figures forecast that Latinos will make up one-third of the U.S. population by 2050. The population of Latino teens alone has grown 110 percent since 1992. There is debate about the impact of this demographic shift on the nation. Is it an opportunity or a challenge? Is America poised to accommodate this shift or are we unprepared? I would argue a little of both. While, there are 1.6 million Latino-owned businesses in America and the Latino community is the youngest and fastest growing minority population in the country, Latino students also hold the distinction of having one of the highest high-school dropout rates.

Desperation sometimes masks itself in acceptance. Such was the case for Takelia Carter of Marion, Ark. For Carter, the mother of six school-age children in a low paying job, desperation was normative existence. This was her life in Crittenden County, Ark., deep in the Delta where unfortunately one in four families lives well below the poverty level.

There are numerous factors driving the new industrial revolution in the South. And it is a revolution, as this manufacturing surge that began in 2007 continues to break records year after year in the total number of large, capital intensive projects. One factor, of course, is that reshoring of facilities back to the U.S. continues to grow each year.
