Yesterday, President Obama introduced a new set of ideas to rethink the way in which we pay for higher education — and shake up the current system. He wants to connect financial aid to school performance, support academic innovation and competition, and make college more affordable.
Yesterday, President Obama traveled to the University at Buffalo, the State University of New York to announce his plan to combat the soaring costs of higher education. The speech, the first stop on a two-day college affordability bus tour, is a part of his broader initiative to secure a better bargain for middle class families.
This week, Bo took on the important role of big brother, the President honored the undefeated, 1972 Miami Dolphins at the White House, and laid out fundamental reforms that would bring real change to the way that we pay for college education in this country during a two-day bus tour in New York.
Last June, the President hosted the National Conference on Mental Health to talk about how we can raise awareness of mental health issues and make it easier for Americans of all ages to reach out and get help. Thanks to the the Affordable Care Act, health care will be more accessible and affordable for American families.
Making College Affordable
This week, President Obama will layout a plan to make college more affordable, tackle rising costs, and improve value for students and their families.
