Few things are more important than making sure we provide every child with a first-class education.
President Obama has championed a number of policies that are helping more kids graduate from high school than ever before. School Improvement Grants are turning around “dropout factories,” or schools that graduate less than 60% of their students. We’re also on our way to connecting 99% of schools to high-speed internet through the President’s Connect Ed initiative. And by “schools,” I mean every seat in every classroom.
I’m a policy wonk, but I’m also a mom who is relieved, proud, and encouraged that the Administration’s work and the hard work of all Americans to bring our economy back from the brink of collapse is succeeding. I hope that these charts are as encouraging to you as they are to me. We have more work to do, but we do it knowing that we have come a long way over the last 6 years.
Thanks for following along! It’s be a lot of fun.
