This would benefit our country in more ways than one. Economically, we will be stronger as a whole, being more educated usually means better higher paying jobs, thus creating more people that are able to put more money into the economy. Having more intelligent people working in the United States, would mean more American innovation, a stronger and more well-rounded society, and more people able to contribute to world issues. Higher education also means less crime and violence as well. Without ignorance of not having an education, people won't rely on crime, deadly drugs and living in poverty as a way of life.
