Obama On Education

President Obama gave a huge speech today on Education

President Obama is basically showing Republicans now to walk and chew gum at the same time. I am amazed by how focused Obama is, addressing all the important issues. Republicans have criticized him for taking on too many issues to which Obama responded that it's like Firefighters only focusing their efforts on the living room and letting the rest of the house burn to the ground. Brilliant!

Here is the Gates Foundation response to Obama speech on Education
"President Obama today continued to advance the urgent demand to improve America’s public education system from the earliest ages through high school and the completion of a college degree or certificate.

We join our grantees and students across the country in this important endeavor, including the need for fewer, clearer, and higher standards; pay that rewards effective teachers; data systems that track student achievement; and increasing financial aid that rewards postsecondary completion--not simply access."
