Abstract

After deciding to pursue a career in education and regularly reading, seeing, and hearing the laments of educators and the general public about education, this project developed. The idea that education is bogged down, lags in innovation, and is chaotic drove a qualitative study to uncover the true state of education, whether it is truly so awful, and whether it is still worthy of pursuit. A literature review laid a foundation for the study. Then, six education professionals were intereviewed, and their experiences and beliefs were synthesized. This researcher concludes that, yes, education has its issues; and, there are struggles that are worth enduring to build a brighter future.
