"I want to publicly thank the Commission for their tireless work and research on this report," Secretary Duncan said. "The Commission has sounded a powerful and important alarm about the distance we still have to go to improve education for every American child. These challenges are not new, but they demand our attention, as long as they stand between us and a truly equal opportunity to reach the American dream."
Fattah said, "I look forward to working with my colleagues and policymakers around the country to make equity and excellence a reality for every American child and to strengthen America's future for generations to come."
