The President in Iowa: “We don’t have to collect a bunch of binders”

President Obama in Mt. Vernon, Iowa

For his first campaign stop after last night’s debate, President Obama went to Cornell College in Iowa to talk to a crowd of fired-up students and families about the clear choice for the next generation:

“We could gut education, pay for Governor Romney’s $5 trillion tax cut—or we can recruit 100,000 new math and science teachers over the next decade—helping our young people refocus on science and technology, engineering, math. We should make sure all our young people—our daughters as well as our sons—are thriving in these fields. This should be a national mission.

“I've got to tell you, we don’t have to collect a bunch of binders to find qualified, talented, driven young women ready to learn and teach in these fields right now.”
