Though there are many great schools in America, there are also enormous problems with the educational system that can't be ignored any longer, Oprah says. Bill and Melinda Gates are on a mission to change America's public schools and help people become more aware of the crisis this country is facing. The Gates family is asking all Americans to "stand up" and join them.

"I believe, just as I know all of you watching believe, that every American child deserves the best school," Oprah says. "If you've watched this show today, and you realize that your child is one of the children who is not getting the best that this nation has to offer or if you are concerned about what's happening to other kids in this country, go to StandUp.org."
