Obama’s education vision.
Community organizer, Barack Obama.
“… to redesign America’s high schools so they better equip graduates for the demands of a high-tech economy. And we’ll reward schools that develop new partnerships with colleges and employers, and create classes that focus on science, technology, engineering and math, the skills today’s employers are looking for to fill the jobs that are there right now and will be there in the future.” – President Obama, State of the Union
I was in my hospital bed Tuesday night as President Obama gave his State of the Union message.
Shortly after, “Mr. Speaker. The President of the United States,” I was asleep.
The next day I read about it in the NY Times.
I scanned it to see if he mentioned schools.
There wasn’t much. But there was his plan for using federal money to push an agenda.
Like Race to the Top.
He will reward schools that develop partnerships that focus on science, technology, engineering and math.
No rewards for partnerships that focus on art.
Or jewelry makers.
Or with community organizers.
Like he was.
