Barrack Obama just made a State of the Union speech on Tuesday the 25th. He focused much of his speech on education.
There were three questions that Obama wanted all students to answer:
- What do you think of that idea?
- What would you change about the world?
- What do you want to be when you grow up?
Barrack Obama said that we have the most successful companies, and our country has the best colleges and universities. In fact, people come here more than any other place to study in our schools.
Obama thinks the future is ours to win. “The future is not a gift. It is an achievement,” he said, quoting Robert Kennedy.
Obama says, "And now it’s our turn. We know what it takes to compete for the jobs and industries of our time. We need to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world."
