A Nation at Risk: The Imperative for Educational Reform, A Report to the Nation and the Secretary of Education
United States Department of Education, The National Commission on Excellence in Education, April 1983
A Nation at Risk: The Imperative For Educational Reform is the title of the 1983 report of American President Ronald Reagan‘s National Commission on Excellence in Education. Its publication is considered a landmark event in modern American educational history. Among other things, the report contributed to the ever-growing (and still present) sense that American schools are failing, and it touched off a wave of local, state, and federal reform efforts.
