The National Goals process rightly calls us to "wake up" and embark on a renewed education agenda from the earliest childhood years through lifelong learning. Information gathered during the past few years should convince all of us that we need to get busy to rebuild our education system to make it world-class.

The quality of schooling affects every American, directly or indirectly. Parents, of course, have a clear stake in seeing that the National Goals are met.

We all have jobs to do, and we must unite as a nation to carry them out--our future depends on it.
