he Declaration of Independence guarantees Americans the rights of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. Yet more than two centuries later, social ills abound throughout the United States, creating a vast web of interconnected social problems that profoundly influence education and ultimately deny some children their rights. In this article, the authors summarize the conditions of American schools today and discuss different facts that affect learning negatively. Education solutions are also presented - those with successful outcomes as well as those that have proven inadequate for successful schooling in America.
