In this chapter, Linda Darling-Hammond confronts the question of what floor of educational opportunity a federal right to education should guarantee. Darling-Hammond considers research regarding the resources that students need to receive an excellent and equitable educational opportunity, including high-quality teachers and principals as well as access to a rigorous curriculum and the course materials and technology needed for a modern education. She argues that a federal right to education should guarantee these resources for all children as the nation strives to eliminate educational opportunity and achievement gaps.
