When our national security is at risk because not enough young men and women can qualify to serve in its defense, it sounds an alarm.

Condoleezza Rice, former U.S. secretary of state, is calling the country to arms in support of a more comprehensive educational system. 

Rice maintains large swaths of the United States fail to meet national standards, adding that by simply looking at zip codes she could tell whether an area is failing its students. Rice spoke on the PBS news program, The News Hour, Tuesday night, along with Joel Klein, former chancellor of New York City schools.
