SENTINEL WATCH

EDUCATION FOR ALL CHILDREN

From the March 2, 2009 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


ARNE DUNCAN, the newly appointed United States Secretary of Education, refers to children's education as "the civil rights issue of our generation" ( The Christian Science Monitor, December 18, 2008). Just as the cause of civil rights for African Americans has called forth passionate response and faithful prayers—and continues to progress as the US elected its first African American President—the right of children worldwide to receive quality education deserves passionate commitment and dedicated prayers.
