A Nation Prepared

According to Governor Thomas Kean and Marc Tucker, the improvement of teaching standards is directly connected to both economic growth and the standard of living in the United States.

At the time of this interview, Kean, who was governor of New Jersey, served as a member of the Carnegie Task Force on Teaching as a Profession. The Forum’s first report, A Nation Prepared: Teachers for the 21st Century, was published in May 1986. Tucker was executive director of the Carnegie Forum on Education and the Economy.
