    Dukakis made an impassioned argument for the role of government policy in improving people’s lives. He recalled growing up in the Boston suburb of Brookline at a time when the national high school dropout and infant mortality rates were much higher and Boston was “dirty, angry, and declining.” Dukakis told the students, “The fact that things are better now has a lot to do with people like you who decided they wanted something better and worked like hell to achieve it.”
