"By the year 2000, 60 percent of the new jobs in America will require
advanced technological skills."
- Vice President Al Gore
That is why President Clinton and Vice President Gore have called on
parents, teachers, members of the business community and others to join in a
new national mission.
They have set a new challenge for America...
They are calling for every young person to enter the workforce
technologically literate in the 21st Century. For this, we need schools
equipped with the right technology.
The four pillars of our challenge are quite simple:
- Modern computers and learning devices will be accessible to every student.
- Classrooms will be connected to one another and to the outside world.
- Educational software will be an integral part of the curriculum -- and as engaging as
the best video game.
- Teachers will be ready to use and teach with technology.
