The year was 1955. The Iron Curtain was up. The Cold War was on. In Japan, a young investigator for U.S. Army counterintelligence was at a crossroads: He could return home to a plain, unexciting job as a schoolteacher or join the CIA and lead a glamorous, globe-trotting existence. Easy decision. "There was not much of a question about it," James Cowan said. If Cowan had one life to give for his country, it would be as an educator.

In 1998, education became the No. 1 public concern and, consequently, the No. 1 political issue. Every candidate for public office espoused an education platform designed to improve California's schools. Hence, a new group of elected leaders who vowed in campaign promises to "fix the California's schools" will be sworn into office in early January. For those of us in the education business, this is both a blessing and a curse. We are blessed with so much interest and energy focused on what we believe is the most important work that a society can do--educating its youth.
