“Generations of immigrants have come to America seeking a better way of life for their families. They came here because they believe in freedom. We have an obligation to honor the values of our immigrants -hardwork and enterprise, faith and family-by giving every child the opportunity to fulfill his or her ambitions and to live the American dream. There is no more certain path to realizing this goal than through education."
Roderick Paige, Secretary of Education (2001-2005)
