Can we have great schools for any family, for any child, for any student who wants it? Yes, but we will have to change a few things to get there. Let us resolve to make great schools available to all facets of society, to all socioeconomic strata, for all religions and worldviews. It should not matter what zip code you live in. If you are willing to show up every day and to study, you deserve knowledgeable teachers who are caring and compassionate, and a school that is well managed by competent administrators.
