Investing in Educational Equity and Opportunity

OTL Federal Recommendations
Banks are not the only ones who need greater federal support. Educational equity
and opportunity for all children is the most important investment we can make.
In a turbulent economy, there is one investment that always pays off: investing in the next generation. By ensuring all children equal access to high quality educational resources, we can return our economy, community, and democracy to solid ground.
