Education and Entrepreneurship: SOTU 2013

Preschool, according to NPR, can be one thing that defines how well a child will do in life [I know, but it's really true!]. President Obama proposes creating high quality early education in every state to improve out country as a whole, and that a high school diploma should actually mean something.

 

Obama also proposes that we focus on making funds available for entrepreneurship, making credit available again. This makes perfect sense as these are the people who create the new jobs that will define our community.
