Announcing the President’s First-Ever Tumblr Q&A

 

 

We’re excited to announce that on Tuesday, June 10, at 4:00 PM ET President Obama will take to Tumblr to answer your questions about education, college affordability, and reducing student loan debt.

 

Getting a higher education is the single-most important investment students can make in their own futures. At the same time, it’s never been more expensive. That’s why since taking office, the President has made historic investments to make college more affordable – and it’s why he’s inviting you to join a conversation about the issue. Starting today, you can submit questions for the President at ObamaIRL.tumblr.com.

This will be the President’s first-ever Tumblr Q&A, and will be moderated by David Karp, founder and CEO of the platform, live from the White House. With more than 40 percent of users between the age of 18-34, issues like access to higher education and keeping college affordable are particlularly relevant to the Tumblr community.

We’re also inviting some of our White House Tumblr followers to attend, continuing our series of “White House Socials” that invite our social media followers to engage with administration officials and attend in-person events.

The White House joined Tumblr more than a year ago with GIFs aplenty, and even took a stance on how to pronounce “GIF” (we’re still in the hard ‘g’ camp, by the way). It’s been an incredible way to connect with followers on the issues they care about, including the latest news around the White House, behind-the-scenes photos, graphics, and more. You can follow the White House on Tumblr at WhiteHouse.tumblr.com.

Note: We are no longer accepting applications for our White House Social. Check in at whitehouse.gov/social for upcoming opportunities.

More students than ever before are relying on student loans to pay for their college education. 71 percent of students earning a bachelor’s degree graduate with debt, averaging $29,400. While most students are able to repay their loans, many feel burdened by debt, especially as they seek to start a family, buy a home, launch a business, or save for retirement.

 

President Obama Speaks on Student Loan Debt

 

 

That’s why, as part of his year of action to expand opportunity for all Americans, President Obama is taking steps to make student loan debt more affordable and manageable to repay.

 

Earlier this afternoon, the President signed a memorandumdirecting the Secretary of Education to propose regulations that would allow nearly 5 million federal direct student loan borrowers the opportunity to cap their student loan payments at 10 percent of their income. The memorandum also outlines new executive actions to support federal student loan borrowers, especially vulnerable borrowers who may be at greater risk of defaulting on their loans.

The NCAA Champion UConn Huskies Visit the White House

 

 

This afternoon, President Obama welcomed the NCAA Champion UConn Huskies to the White House. UConn’s men’s and women’s basketball teams both won the 2014 NCAA Championships — so in an effort to “eliminate waste and cut out duplicative programs to make things more efficient,” the President concurrently congratulated both of them. But “this may be carrying things a little too far,” he joked.

 

In the President’s remarks, he highlighted the well-known legacy of UConn basketball. This is the ninth national title for the women, while it’s the men’s fourth title in the last 16 years. And only once before, in 2004, has one school won both the men’s and women’s Division I titles. That team was — you guessed it — UConn.

The Changing Role of Fathers in the Workforce and Family

 

As part of the lead-up to the White House Summit on Working Families, we’ve been exploring policies and best practices that help both families and businesses manage the increasingly complicated interaction between work and family-life. Today, Administration officials hosted a discussion—the first of its kind at the White House—on the state of working dads and how businesses can create a win-win culture to enable these fathers to be more involved parents and better employees.

 

Working Families Summit: A Fatherhood Lead-Up Event

 

 

The need to rethink workplace policies to work better for parents is not just about working moms or women—working fathers are a key piece of the story as well. As the data compiled by the Council of Economic Advisers on “The Economics of Fatherhood and Work” show, the role of fatherhood has been changing with fathers taking a more hands-on approach to raising children. This change is both cultural and economic, with families responding to the reality of women’s increased role in the labor market. Nearly two-thirds of children now have either two working parents or a single parent who is working, contributing to the trend of father’s increasingly caring for children. Today, one in fourteen fathers with kids under 18 are single parents—a striking seven-fold increase since 1970—and dads are increasingly staying at home when their wives work.
