Summary
The demand for highly educated workers has made high-quality academics the most important challenge facing the U.S. today. In this provocative program, syndicated columnist Juan Williams moderates a town meeting of educators, politicians, and opinion-makers, including the chief-of-staff of the U.S. Department of Education; the presidents of Howard University, the College Board, and the NAACP; and retired NBA all-star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Together they discuss issues such as why black children score lower on standardized tests, how to improve academic performance, and Ebonics.
