“The people of the United States need to know that individuals in our society who do not possess the levels of skill, literacy, and training essential to this new era will be effectively disenfranchised, not simply from the material rewards that accompany competent performance, but also from the chance to participate fully in our national life.”
The above quote is from a report that was published in 1983. The report is entitled A Nation at Risk. It was published by the National Commission on Excellence in Education. The sentiment above is why I started this blog and why my purpose in life is to do my part to make certain that communities of color do not become even more disenfranchised.
