President Obama Makes Statement On U.S. Cuba Policy

Here’s some positivity.

President Obama proposed two years of free community college for American workers late Thursday. Earlier that day, the president announced the proposal would be coming in a video uploaded to Facebook.

“Put simply, what I’d like to do is to see the first two years of community college free for anybody who’s willing to work for it,” he said. “It’s something we can accomplish, and it’s something that will train our workforce so that we can compete with anyone in the world.”

Obama said a world-class education starts with children, but that adults need training, too. “It’s not just for kids, we also have to make sure that everybody has the opportunity to constantly train themselves for better jobs, better wages, better benefits.”

The America’s College Promise proposal could save eligible students $3,800 a year in tuition, the White House said.

Previously, we’ve shared some pretty harsh criticisms of the President, wondering where his compassion and urgency towards his people is.
