Are the disparities in our nation’s educational system the most crucial civil rights issue of our time? Former U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige thinks so, and he’s written a book to help move us toward the solution.
A copy of former U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige’s new book, The Black-White Achievement Gap, arrived in our offices this week. Co-authored with Elaine Witty, Ed.D., Paige’s book tackles what it calls “the greatest civil rights issue of our time.” Paige, of course, served under President George W. Bush, from 2001 to 2005, during which time the controversial No Child Left Behind Act was put into effect.
