NOTE: Frank Lynch University™ is a startup in the fundraising stage and is not conducting any classes at this time. Student applications for the first classes may be posted and available for download here beginning in January 2015. for opening in September 2015.

 

Frank Lynch University™ has been the only leader in promoting true educational reform since 2004. Everyone else is cutting and pasting from this website and from www.franklynch.org , ignoring the copyrights.

 

We have been actively promoting awareness that US student scores have been dropping for twenty years, approximately the same period of time during which the US average family income has been declining. During that same twenty years, scores have been increasing in most of the civilized world, with the result that, depending on the year and the subject tested, US students rank between 19th to 31st out of 31 nations tested.

 

The most common college course for native born American citizens is "learning to read English at the 10th grade level."

 

The average US college graduate, i.e., with a 16th grade degree, reads at the 10th grade level. Fewer than 40% of the freshmen in a four year college complete their degree within six years, and their most common major is "women's issues'" We all know how employers are stampeding to hire people who borrowed money to learn about women's issues.

 

Frank Lynch University has successfully introduced to the gubnatorial and Presidential levels, and to the national network TV talks shows, the concept that college graduates should have the skills necessary to get a job. During the nine years of Frank's campaign, we still see little hope that the USA will produce enough students with the full skill set required to maintain our civilization, so that, barring an actual revolution, today's students are more likely to be farm and sex slaves for China, and have little chance of achieving the obsolete American Dream as adults. If you would like a better future than that for our young people, there is only one alternative:

 

THIS PAGE WAS WRITTEN AND PUBLISHED IN 2004, and has changed the national dialogue on education. Fareed Zakaria on his CNN GPS show has been adopting these ideas for the last few years, but they first received national attention with the hordes of political consultants, advisors, strategists, etc. who came to Frank Lynch University as a result of Frank's 2007 Presidential Campaign at

 Of course, they cannot charge their bosses $300,000 or $1,000,000 a year if they say they copied it from Frank! We are irritated that some copycat got $125 million out of Exxon for the theme which we created.

 

Even Exxon Mobil has picked up Frank's theme of improving and creating more and better teachers of Math, medicine, science, and engineering with a barrage of TV ads in the summer of 2012. Compare the Exxon websites at    http://www.exxonmobil.com/Corporate/community_math.aspx and

http://www.exxonmobil.com/Corporate/community_math_nmsi.aspx

with this page, which from 2004 has been clamoring about America's disgraceful international rankings in math, biomed, science and engineering, which copycats have renamed as STEM, but which has been the dominant theme at www.fluni.com for more than eight years.

 

Today Cyberwarfare is all the buzz in Washington. We had it first HERE in 2005, seven years ahead everybody.

 

 The most important thing you can do for the future of America is to donate

 

Frank Lynch University™ is dedicated to curing our catastrophic, absolutely nation destroying shortage of 3,000,000 medical, math, science and engineering teachers.

 

From being number one in the world, our children now score behind 22 nations in math and science tests, but we have now increased spending with the result that we lost three places and now score 25th in math and science. Way to go Obama!. At a time when science and technology are everything, the number of US citizens studying these vital areas has been declining for 30 years. We are in danger of  [ strike "in danger of" written in 2005. Now, in 2012, the truth is as follows: ]

 

We definitely are not producing enough college graduates with useful skills to sustain our civilization.

 

We already import almost all our technology products, from iPods, to cell phones to laptops to aircraft cockpit displays, and even Dreamliner wings!

 

Communist China now has more than double [ Update: change "double" to "FIVE" ] times the number of scientists and engineers as America, and they are good.

 

Each year Red China graduates more scientists and engineers than the US produces

total college graduates,

including our graduates in social work and women's issues.

 

More people score at 10th grade or above reading comprehension

in English in both China and India than in the USA.

 

More than half of US high schools do not have a single course in physics. Many schools use coaches or shop teachers to teach math and science, or teachers who got "Ds" in their college science courses.

 

Unless America immediately treats the 3,000,000 teacher shortage

with the same urgency that we treated World War II, we will be reduced to a

plantation growing food for China and India.

 

America urgently needs 3,000,000 teachers who can teach not only the subject matter of medicine, math, science and engineering, but who can teach the LOVE of these wonderful subjects. We need 3,000,000 teachers who can motivate and inspire our children to not only make careers in these areas, but to excel and to lead the world in medicine, math, science and engineering.

 

To create 3,000,000 inspiring specialized teachers, we must build a university that will set the national example of the very best specialized teachers. We must invent a new curriculum to educate and motivate these specialized teachers. The old curricula do not work, judging by the results. Our new university must set the example for all the other teachers' colleges to imitate and adopt.

 

Most importantly, we must glorify and glamorize careers in medicine, math, science and engineering to inspire our children to these careers. The first step is a national awareness campaign targeting Hollywood, our elected officials, the media, and school boards throughout the land. We must become propagandists promoting these subjects as the highest and best forms of achievement for our children.

 

Simultaneously, our national campaign must portray math, science and engineering as fun and as being within the attainment of all of our children, not just the white suburban elite.

Of course, to accomplish a major national awareness campaign, we must pay for rallies, travel to TV guest appearances, and major efforts to lobby the news media, cable, TV networks for PSA time for free publicity, and lobbying Hollywood.
