The jobs crisis is an education crisis and if not dealt with will create dire circumstances for America. To solve the education crisis, all must be brought to the effort. Whether you live in an affluent community or reside in a district with low-performing schools, we all must look at every American school and community like it is our own. The stakes are too high to continue not paying attention. The damage will soon be irreversible if we do not act. And the boy who sits in his chair will not be given the chances he deserves if we turn a blind eye to his silent struggle.
