In devising his strategy to bolster the nation’s eroded educational framework, Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education, Anthony Miller, pulls from his business background as well as international research on the processes and metrics employed by other countries to raise the academic bar. At the core of Miller's blueprint is the alignment of student achievement goals and initiatives with budgets and operating plans, as well as making critical investments in training teachers, particularly in the use of technology and collaboration tools to facilitate communication and maximize targeted learning. He also discusses partnerships between major corporations and higher education systems, and the importance of deploying such initiatives to equip students with the competencies most essential to competing and exceling in the 21st century global workplace.
