• Joel: A fair shot

    "President Obama has emphasized education in a way that is different from past presidents and from the current Republican candidate. He has brought a focus to different levels of education, from pre-K learning to secondary school to community colleges. He is focused on every single student, and is focused on providing equal opportunities in education across the country. It doesn’t matter where you live or how wealthy your school district is, President Obama believes in a fair shot for all students.

    "As our son gets closer to graduation, the changes in student loans will become much more of a focus. As someone who had student loans when I first went to college 20 years ago, I completely admire and respect President Obama’s commitment to making higher education accessible and affordable for all students."
