Whenever the talk begins about our nation making quality education a priority, it's no surprise that some may be cynical. After all, we have too many children entering school unprepared, too many falling behind early, and too many dropping out before graduation. Why can't we change this story? The truth is, we can - and we are.
Fulfilling tomorrow's promise depends on our nation taking the right steps today. I'm proud that our AmeriCorps members are serving every day to make that possible from the early years before students begin kindergarten until they finish college.
