Obama calls for more school funding


“NCLB has driven gains in the early grades and highlighted large achievement gaps between students, but has largely ignored high school students,” he said. “In 2010, its time for a reauthorized [education law] that strategically addresses the dropout crisis and begins turning the more than one million dropouts a year into high school graduates who are ready for college and careers.”

Obama is expected to send his budget proposal to Capitol Hill on Feb. 2.
