Last night President Obama gave his first State of the Nation address to congress. One of the three areas his administration will invest in to secure our nation is education.
In a global economy, where the most valuable skill you can sell is your knowledge, a good education is no longer just a pathway to opportunity. It is a prerequisite....So tonight I ask every American to commit to at least one year or more of higher education or career training. This can be a community college or a four-year school, vocational training or an apprenticeship. But whatever the training may be, every American will need to get more than a high school diploma.This is good news to me because this means that there is a place for me and the work I want to do. My challenge is now finding how I fit in.
