Obama Uses Weekly Address To Promote Education

Saturday in his weekly address to the nation President Barack Obama took a break from his Martha’s Vineyard family vacation to speak about education.

The president instead challenged the children of America to “read challenging books.”

The president continued “As long as college costs keep rising, we can’t just keep throwing money at the problem – colleges have to do their part to bring down costs as well,” Obama said.

He added, “That’s why we proposed a plan to tie federal financial aid to a college’s performance, and create a new college scorecard so that students and parents can see which schools provide the biggest bang for your buck.” and he added “more money goes to students instead of big banks.”
