President Obama on Education

President Obama wants everybody to get educated, but will he stand in the way of those who have proven to be effective, or will he only allow the public schools to get educated.

He’s asking us all to commit to at least a year of education. I like that he included apprenticeship.

Good to hear him challenge the high school dropouts: “It’s not just quitting on yourself, it’s quitting on your country.”

“By 2020 America will once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.”

If you volunteer, we’ll make sure you can afford a higher education. Hatch/Kennedy: that’s a document I’d like to see reviewed by honorable and eye open people.

“It is up to us to ensure they walk through [the doors.]”

Thank you for the call to parents. Responsibility for education must begin at home. I would argue it should end there too.
