Today in America, only half of students who enroll in college earn a degree and half of black and Latino teenagers drop out of high school. Where did we go wrong and what will it take to regain our global edge? To answer these questions, President Obama has put out the call to fix our nation's schools and he's linking billions of dollars in federal aid to states that meet criteria recently released by the U.S. Department of Education. Join three of the country's top education leaders for a frank discussion on this new opportunity to revitalize the country’s education system, and hear them talk about the state of our schools, barriers to reform, and what's at stake for our children and America's future.
