There is an acute storage of educators across the country. The most vital institution in the United States appears to be on the verge of collapse. In his nineteenth century autobiography, the Education of Henry Adams, the author states, “Education is the dynamo that drives the democracy.” Perhaps the reason that American democracy appears to be troubled is that American education is in deep trouble.
