Obama challenges lawmakers to strengthen education
from eSchool News
In a State of the Union address that was as much a campaign speech as a call to action, President Barack Obama touted his administration's success in spurring school reform and challenged lawmakers to build on this success by investing more in education and research to "prepare for the jobs of tomorrow." Facing a deeply divided Congress, Obama appealed for lawmakers to send him legislation on a host of issues, including education, clean energy, housing and immigration reform — knowing full well the election-year prospects are bleak but aware that polls show the independent voters who lifted him to the presidency crave bipartisanship.
