There are two messages for retired teachers: the "war" for education has "œescalated and intensified" and many of these "veteran" teachers need to be redrafted through"evoluntary enlistment." Davis provided statistics showing that illiteracy rates, low graduation rates, and the limited number of minorities entering graduate programs pose challenges educators must confront. He made a plea to retirees to utilize their talents so that many youths do not give up on their educational goals or dreams. Delivered 15 November 1987 at the Association of Retired Teachers.
