Obama Addresses Education in Weekly Address

President Obama speaking two days ago at an Intel computer chip manufacturing plant in Portland, adressed his goals in education reform policy.

From the President's Address:

Obama said his administration will help by making education “a top priority,” through programs like Race to the Top, which has been credited with spurring education reform through a federal grant competition among states.

“If we want to win the global competition for new jobs and industries, we’ve got to win the global competition to educate our people,” Obama said. “We’ve got to have the best-trained, best-skilled workforce in the world. That’s how we’ll ensure that the next Intel, the next Google, or the next Microsoft is created in America, and hires American workers.”

Here is a POLITICO article detailing the president's address. It includes a video of the speech.
