Check it out: Education Equality Project

The Education Equality Project gained support from Senator John McCain today.

Already supported by notable advocates for education reform, including former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, former DC Councilman and founder of Democrats for Education Reform- Kevin Chavous, former Milwaukee Public Schools Superintendent Howard Fuller, former congressman J.C. Watts, and many others, the Education Equality Project released the following statement regarding Senator McCain's remarks at the National Urban League's convention earlier this morning:

"We are gratified that Senator McCain has endorsed the principles of the Education Equality Project, joining education, civil rights, and elected officials across America who are working together to bring meaning ful reform to our nation's public schools. The members of the Education Equality Project believe that education reform is the civil rights issue of our time. Fixing our schools won't be easy and it will require strong national leadership--but nothing short of that will enable us to live up to our basic commitment to our children: to help them learn so they have a real shot at achieving the American dream. Education reform, like civil rights, is above partisan politics and must be embraced by all."
