The Clarion Call for Action Continues: 35 years after the historic release of the “A Nation at Risk” report, The 74 sat down with key education advocates, leaders, and policymakers to trace its impact through the decades.

In an earlier documentary, we chronicled the report’s creation and reception; in today’s sequel, we look at the immediate action it spurred — and how it continues to shape the education conversation today.
