No Child Left Behind legislation requiring states to publicize annual test scores has heightened the nation's awareness of large academic achievement disparities among America's students. Statistics reveal disproportionately low college admission rates among African American and Latino students. The nation cannot afford to face the future with large numbers of its youth uneducated and poor; therefore, it is urgent for K-12 schools and institutions of higher education to join forces to reframe the nation's educational agenda.
