Obama makes pitch to expand high-speed Internet access to schools
from The New York Times
President Barack Obama took a break from crisis and gridlock to advance two often-overlooked priorities focused on children, one to wire more of the nation's schools to the Internet and the other to overhaul child care for low-income families. Even as the capital buzzes with anger over Obama's planned announcement on immigration reform and the Senate blocking passage of the Keystone XL oil pipeline, the president staged back-to-back events at the White House to showcase progress in these two areas and, along the way, to try to reinforce that he still has a role to play even though he now faces an opposition Congress for his final two years in office.
