The Three Amigos Of Educational Equity

from the nyc public school parents news group
"Klein, Sharpton Respond To McCain Speech", Press Release
Education Equality Project, August 1, 2008
The following is a joint statement by New York City Schools Chancellor Joel I. Klein and Reverend Al Sharpton on Senator John McCain's remarks at the National Urban League's convention this morning: "We are gratified that Senator McCain has endorsed the principles of the Education Equality Project, joining education, civil rights, and elected officials across America who are working together to bring meaningful reform to our nation's public schools. The members of the Education Equality Project believe that education reform is the civil rights issue of our time. Fixing our schools won't be easy and it will require strong national leadership--but nothing short of that will enable us to live up to our basic commitment to our children: to help them learn so they have a real shot at achieving the American dream. Education reform, like civil rights, is above partisan politics and must be embraced by all."
