FOLEY failure in addressing the reform of our nation’s public schools (Valencia, 2000a). For example, such inattention by the state of Texas and its expert witnesses to past discrimination was clearly seen in the GI Forum et al. v. Texas Education Agency et al. court case.

Creating a high-profile public mandate for achieving true success for all children, an outcome supported by both major parties and by most business leaders, is a democratic necessity.
