The event included presentations from National Academy of Sciences President Ralph Cicerone and National Academy of Engineering President Charles Vest, as well as Norman Augustine, all of whom emphasized that in the last five years, the outlook for a globally competitive U.S. has worsened and one of the greatest causes for concern is the dismal state of K-12 education.
