“America can once again become the best-educated people in the world through a few strategic interventions at key points in the schooling trajectory.” Peter D. Salins, “Strengthening America’s Greatest Resource, Its People,” (2014), p. 2.
“The project of fixing America’s educational system should begin with a strategic analysis of where, in the interaction of children and schools, we find our most serious academic problems, and where, in the educational pipeline, those problems can be most effectively addressed.” Salins, p.50.
Peter D. Salins earned bachelor of architecture, master of planning, and doctoral degrees at Syracuse University. He earned a reputation as an excellent problem solver and has written books about housing, immigration and other public policy issues.
