Bill Gates: U.S., world need to focus on real problems
Elaine Thompson, Associated Press
Bill Gates was involved in a Q-and-A session with Reddit, a social media site, this past week as a part of the site’s “Ask Me Anything” feature, according to fastcoexist.com. Gates said on Reddit that lots of issues plague the United States and the world, especially when it comes to education. He also said there’s too much politics in the educational debate, and the focus needs to change in politics overall.
“I wish the debate about education would focus on helping teachers improve and what we know about that. Right now it is caught up in state versus federal and testing versus no-testing,” Gates said, according to fastcoexist.com. “In general politics needs to focus on the problems rather than attacking the other side. Asian countries are helping their teachers improve and the impact is huge.”
