How These Standards Further Equity of Opportunity

January 11, 2016

“These gaps, as long as they exist are not good for America…we’re going to continue to have many individuals not being able to take advantage of what this country offers and not being able to give back to this country what they could give back.”

“[Business leaders] telling the story of what a good education does for the economy from the business perspective is so important because they have an authentic voice and are listened to at all levels…they know what they need…and they know when they’re not getting it.”

“Education and how well educated a person is…touches health, level in the workforce, and what kind of house they’re going to live in…it is the key to having a good life.”
