pon the creation of the Gnited States, one of the core concepts on which the hopes for the new
de)ocracy were pinned was the ideal that its citiHens would be enlightened individuals with clearly
articulated rights and the opportunity for individual achieve)ent and education. 't was believed that in a free
nation where the power belongs to the people, the co))it)ent to education defines the progress of that
de)ocracy and is the catalyst for future progress. This core value has not only stood the test of ti)e but has
also grown in i)portance. 'n this new 'nfor)ation 3ra and international econo)y, education is an increasingly
vital co))odity, a precursor of potential success and a driving force of change. 't is i)portant to recogniHe,
