Obama: U.S. Has ‘Slipped’ in the Category of Upward Mobility


Thursday at the Every Student Succeeds Act signing ceremony, President Barack Obama declared the United States has “slipped” in the category upward mobility.

Obama said, “It really goes to the essence of what we are about as Americans. There was a time I think when upward mobility was a hallmark of America. We have slipped on that front compared to other countries. And some of it is because where we used to be so for ahead in investing in education for every child, now on some indicators we have been lagging behind.”
