For years I have believed that the salvation of our people lies in education. Providing our students with a quality education focused on college preparedness is crucial to the future success of American Samoa. It is important that in this effort we support the teaching profession and prepare our teachers to be effective in the classroom. We must also ensure that students in remote and rural areas such as the U.S. Territories have access to after-school programs that improve academic performance. Most importantly, we must also remember that job creation on island will ensure that our young people have career options back home.
