He who ceases to learn cannot adequately teach.
I have over 25 years of experience on both side of the Atlantic and I can notice that USA is not achieving the dramatic improvements needed for the new generation of middle-class Americans to confront the new age they will have to face. Here is a selection of links to prove that the rest of the developed world is moving at a faster and more effective pace. We need to act fast and efficiently if we want to give our new generation a real chance to maintain and improve American prosperity.
The challenges imposed on the world by the new conditions require our children to be educated and prepared to respond to the demands of the 21st century and face the Generation E. Today education will determine future American's prosperity and the success of the USA. We are at the dawn of a new age (Since at least 1998) where the USA may not be the main leader. Political domination is and will be harder to obtain (if not impossible) as we go forward. Four of the 7 major industrial countries G-7 votes are European nations and agreements as the Kyoto Protocol demonstrate a change in the world political leadership. The Euro (European Economic and Monetary Union - January 1 2002 - Austria, Belgium, Finland, France (except Pacific territories using CFP franc), Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain) is another instance of the new emerging world challenging the US Dollar. Language proficiency, multicultural knowledge, physical, mental, and emotional challenges will make the difference for our children. They must set high standards. We need to help them build character, to train them to be participating citizens, and develop personal fitness. We must educate our children in foreign languages, arts, moral and ethical values through programs that bring challenges. Only then they will be able to stand up for what they believe in.
Example of major financial players, challenges, achievements, and harsh competition:

|Women's apparel shops||Publicis||Vodaphone|
|Cadbury Schwepps||Sodexho||Royal Dutch Shell|
|TGV & High Speed Rail||Ocean liner Queen Mary||European Pharmaceutical Industry|
|Eurotunnel England France||World's longest tunnel Swiss Alps||Technology Research Europe|

What we human beings are all living now, whether we are volunteers or not, is an extraordinary but exceptionally dangerous adventure. And we have a very small number of years left to fail or to succeed in providing a sustainable future to our species. - Jacques-Yves Cousteau
We need to support schools and teachers in Alabama that are teaching foreign languages.
