The Reopening Of The American Mind

“If an unfriendly foreign power had attempted to impose on America the mediocre educational performance that exists today, we might well have viewed it as an act of war. As it stands, we have allowed this to happen to ourselves … we have, in effect, been committing an act of unthinking, unilateral educational disarmament.”

— From the US Dept. of Education Report: A Nation at Risk, 1983
