How the AMERO Could Help Solve America's School Crisis

As more teachers strike for increased school funding and tax-payers resist higher taxes to pay for it, there is a solution at hand.

Teachers have been demonstrating and striking for higher wages and more school funding in a number of states in recent weeks and there is no sign of it stopping.

It is true that teachers are paid a fair wage only in a few school districts and a new poll shows that 78% of all Americans believe that teachers are paid too little. But, only 38% of Republicans believe that teachers should be paid more and Republican lawmakers in Colorado are promoting a bill that would make it illegal for teachers to strike.

It is also true that some teachers may be paid too much and some teachers's unions resist or block needed reforms. In many school districts it can be very difficult to replace a bad teacher and students suffer because of it.

Teachers and school employees are public servants and parents count on them to do their job, but they can't do their job properly if they aren't paid a living wage or schools don't receive enough funding to operate at the level needed.

More funding of the right type could solve a lot of school problems and there is a way that school funding could be increased and teachers compensated fairly while actually lowering the burden on taxpayers. The AMERO is a new people's digital currency (cryptocurrency), to be launched on June 4th that will provide debt-free funding for government agencies, including schools. The AMERO given to schools can be redeemed for a wide range of goods and services. This will stretch school budgets and enable taxpayer's dollar funding to be conserved and used for other school needs, such as increasing teacher's pay. 

The currency is being developed by the North America Procurement Council in partnership with the International Digital Monetary Council, a non-profit think tank.

Contractors and vendors are now being signed up to accept the AMERO and the current list of those who accept AMERO can be found at www.ShopAMERO.com.

Grant applications are being accepted at www.AMEROGrants.org. 450 billion AMERO will initially be created and 90% will be distributed through grants to government agencies, non-profit organizations (NGOs) and for important R&D in North & Central America and the Caribbean.
