Great schools — where creative educators engage students in work that really matters — are the right of every student, parent and community. If we want education to continue to be the great equalizer of our nation, we must empower and support our educators as they do this hard work, especially in the places that need them the most. We also must have the courage to take action when even one of our students does not have access to a high-quality education. Our work is not done until every student has the opportunity to attend a great school.
