The report says that three things are happening to undermine "The American Dream".
- Substantial disparities in skill levels in reading and mathematical literacy- I look at what is going on in Austin and the differences between the low income areas and the higher income areas in education. There are HUGE differences and NCLB is not making a difference.
- Seizmic Economic Changes-the ENORMOUS gap between what a CEO is making and an average worker in the same company, the types of jobs available to lower educated people and their hopes for advancement.
- Sweeping demographic changes (less education, lower skills)
