Make American education great again

David Hornbeck’s commentary on the importance of early childhood education and his recommendations for strengthening this aspect of education in Maryland are equally relevant for American education (“Md. education commission should focus on pre pre-school years,” Dec. 22).

It is a travesty that our American economy and military are seen as No.1, but our education system, when compared with other nations, is often rated considerably below the top. Our elected leaders in Maryland and nationally need to understand that an investment in education provides excellent returns — some have suggested a $4 return for each $1 invested. They need to act on the recommendations of education leaders such as Mr. Hornbeck and of business leaders including the U. S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation to strengthen American education, beginning at the early childhood, pre-kindergarten levels, and beyond. Our goal should be for American education to be at the top, consistent with our economic system and our military defense.
