For our nation, the DREAM Act means success

Dr. Biden writes a wonderful piece telling why our country needs the DREAM Act. - - Donna Poisl


I have been an educator for almost 30 years and I continue to teach English full time at a community college not too far from the White House. Education for me is not an abstract policy debate -- it's about the young people I work with every day who are overcoming countless obstacles to prepare themselves for success.

I'm proud that the president and vice president know the value of education to our nation. This administration recognizes that if America is to remain competitive in an increasingly dynamic global economy, we need to work hard to improve our schools, boost our graduation rates, and ensure that our nation is once again the world's leader in cultivating skilled talent.

In short, we must seek at every step to enable children to succeed.
