“Education is the key to...” has been the precursor to many sapient phrases in history. As much as education is a vital component to every given community, there is a disconnect. In the past few decades, a growing demand for education reform emerged clamoring for the revamping of curricula, adjustment of budgets, resolving underfunding, regulating the increasing student tuition & debt, & reinforcing teacher’s rights.
