    Technology could be the key to raising standards in education, according to one expert.

    Julia Freedland Fisher is the latest professional pundit to give TES US their views about the state of education in the country.

    Are you a fan of blended learning environments? Can technology really help to raise standards in the classroom and in the profession? Do you think the next president will put education at the top of the agenda?

    Absolutely technology can help raise the standard of education. So many states struggle and our country as a whole hasn't made education the priority that it should be. It's not about cutting costs it's about using the money that they wisely; paying teachers a living wage, technology in the classroom, cutting from the top.

    Thank you for your comment @TeacherClaire2.

    Do you think that the new Trump administration will make education the priority that it should be?

    As the US is a collection of states rather than one unified country I doubt there is much a President can do. However individual states can do a lot. Recent elections in Chicago and Illinois have made radical changes to their Government and Education is top of their agenda. Just the sitting mayor to push out in Chicago and things will happen. One of the Mayoral candidates is a former teacher (and a friend).
