Education Is the Answer in the Obama Administration
"In a global economy, where the most valuable skill you can sell is your knowledge, a good education is no longer just a pathway to opportunity. It is a prerequisite,"
- Barack Obama, U.S. president
President Obama has strong words for education in America today.
In urging Americans to take advantage of the promise of an education, the president makes additional promises: more funding for schools, financial aid that's easier to find, and a healthy job market that is ready to accept new graduates in the coming years.
