A significant policy issue facing U.S. public education is why dramatic increases in resources for schools do not appear to translate into enhanced student performance. As the federal government mandates improvement in student achievement, and the failure of public schools become even more transparent to the general public, the private education industry will be called on to help solve this problem. Companies that can add value to the bottom line of student achievement will not only survive this economic downturn but also see substantial revenue growth.
