Education is key to building a strong society. Political leaders throughout the centuries realized that tailoring education in specific ways would bring specific results. The education system develops future members of society impacting civic engagement and the work force, both of which are political.

Lastly this research shows how these changing trends impact students in the classroom and how they are prepared for the work force and civic involvement.
