Obama Visits Michigan High School

The gym of Michigan's North Farmington High School was the scene of a visit by Barack Obama just yesterday. He took the time to make a few remarks.
On education, Obama wants to invest in early childhood education, close the achievement gap, pay teachers more money in exchange for more accountability, make college affordable for everyone, in exchange for community service.

“That’s change,” he said. “And, that’s what I’m going to do when I’m the president of the United States.”
As is the case with so many of both McCain's and Obama's speeches, I found lots of nice-sounding generalities but little of substance. But don't take may word for it, go ahead and judge for yourself.
