Quality education for African, Hispanic, and Asian Americans

Nearly every American believes that education is a critical issue when it comes to advancing our society.  For some, a quality K-12 education and admission to a top University are taken granted.  For others, it may be the only potential path to financial stability. 

And while politicians continue to emphasize its importance and make hallow campaign promises, the overall quality of education compared to other countries continues to erode, and the disparity between schools in wealthy versus poor neighborhoods continues to widen.
