We will know that we have accomplished our goal when the children born this year are the most college and career-ready class in the nation when they graduate – 18 years from now.”

 OK, it is big, it is hairy and audacious – but is it just a pipe dream? Yesterday, I saw a video of how a failing high school is turning around in dramatic ways.  This video gives me hope.
