President Obama named education as one of the cornerstones of middle-class security in a speech this weekat Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois.
The President laid out a vision for what our country needs to do to rebuild that foundation – including in education. “The days when the wages for a worker with a high-school degree could keep pace with the earnings of someone who got some higher education are over,” he said.
On Wednesday, Secretary Arne Duncan joined Miss America 2013 Mallory Hagan, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker, two-time space shuttle astronaut, George Zamka and U.S. Senators Johnny Isakson and Michael Bennet, for the third installment of our Let’s Read! Let’s Move! summer series.
