President Obama gave a speech today on education reform at the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Here’s the transcript.
It doesn’t sound particularly impressive to me, but I was struck by one good line in particular:
And I’m calling on our nation’s governors and state education chiefs to develop standards and assessments that don’t simply measure whether students can fill in a bubble on a test, but whether they possess 21st century skills like problem-solving and critical thinking and entrepreneurship and creativity.
Any other thoughts on his speech?
