Public education is the key civil rights
issue of the 21st century. Our nation's
knowledge-based economy demands that we
provide young people from all backgrounds

and the poor. This gap threatens our democracy,
our society and the economic future of America.

Martin - School
My parents shared not only an improbable
love, they shared an abiding faith in the
possibilities of this nation. They would
give me an African name, Barack, or blessed,

a generous America you don't have to be
rich to achieve your potential.

losers, what separates the all-stars from the also-rans.
