America Without Health Care Reform
An America without health care reform is an America where families face ever-higher health insurance premiums, businesses drop coverage and trim employee benefits, doctors lack access to objective information about the treatments they provide, and millions of Americans live just one medical emergency away from bankruptcy. It’s an America that spends billions on tests and treatments that cannot be shown to improve health —even as more than 50 million people go without health insurance . Those who oppose health reform are choosing to maintain this status quo. But without reform, our broken health care system will ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Reform of Common Agricultural Policy generates bitter conflicts
A weeklong series of meetings of European agriculture ministers ended in total disarray. They were trying to reach agreement on plans to slash billions from the European Union's Common Agricultural Policy budget, reduce protection for farmers from international trade and put agriculture on a more 'free market' basis. Only a few measures were agreed. The meeting concluded with bitter recriminations between Germany and France, countries that for nearly 40 years have been the driving force behind the European project. The proposals will now be discussed at a meeting of European finance ministers on March 25. The ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Principal: How to REALLY turn around a school
For the past 18 years I have worked as a high school/middle school principal alongside a dedicated staff and a community committed to improving a school. In that time we have increased graduation and college going rates, engaged our students in more internships and college courses, created an advisory system that keeps tabs on all of our students, and developed the highest graduation standards in the state (including a Senior Project and Graduation Portfolio). But reading the popular press, and listening to the chatter from Washington, I have just found out that we are not part of the movement to ‘reform’ schools. You see, we ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Gov. Joe Manchin says he plans to call for a financial audit of West Virginia's public education system. The governor has repeatedly questioned why the state is spending more on each student than most other states, yet getting results that are significantly worse.

We're going to audit the entire education system," Manchin said.

How much does Sec. Gates want to cut defense bureaucracy by?
Defense Secretary Robert Gates says there's a problem in the military with bloated bureaucracy, wasteful business practices and too many generals and admirals. Gates says he's ordering a top-to-bottom trimming in search of at least $10 billion in annual savings needed to prevent an erosion of U.S. combat power. In a speech at the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum in his home town of Abilene, Kan., Gates outlined an ambitious plan for reform that's almost certain to stir opposition in Congress and the Pentagon. In his farewell address to the nation in 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower famously warned of ...
