“And I’ve said this all across the country when I talk to parents about education, government has to fulfill its obligations to fund education, but parents have to do their job too. We’ve got to turn off the TV set, we’ve got to put away the video game, and we have to tell our children that education is not a passive activity, you have to be actively engaged in it. If we encourage that attitude and our community is enforcing it, I have no doubt we can compete with anybody in the world.” ~~ Barack Obama
Mary Nixon says
Curious that everything relates to money. Is it not possible today for a man with the stature of the President of the United States of America to speak of education without couching it in terms of the Almighty Dollar?
When did he say this? Please respond ASAP. I need to know for a project the date that this was said. Thanks so much
