Ultimately, if we do not get this fixed, the basic educational enterprise is in jeopardy. Students will drift away, or not come. Governments, already throttled by far more demands on shrinking resources, will gradually withdraw support. Parents, buffeted by declining asset values, will lose interest, too. The future of education is bleak unless changes are made from within. And, it is only in making these overdue improvements that we can provide our customers with a positive return on their investment.

In this increasingly competitive world, education is a precious activity influencing our prosperity, health, technology and citizenship. We should not jeopardize it by employing the same practices as Studebaker.
