The Promise of Opportunity
Kerry, John F.
Phi Delta Kappan, v86 n2 p115 Oct 2004
In this article, the author argues that now as never before, education is the key to opportunity, essential to a strong America. In an age when people compete with workers on every continent and information flows across oceans, high-wage jobs are more dependent than ever on high-level skills. The author suggests that together, an America that offers the best education to all children must be built--wherever they live, whatever their background.
