Obama for America Releases New Television Ad: “Children”CHICAGO
—Obama for America today released a new television advertisement titled “Children”that highlights the clear choice for voters between Mitt Romney and President Obama’s vision for public education. The President believes a strong education system is critical to creating an economy built to last,keeping America competitive, and growing our economy from the middle class out. TheRomney-Ryan plan could gut investments in education by 20 percent and risk as many as 65,000educators’ jobs to pay for tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires, the Romney-Ryan plan denieswhat every parent knows: class size matters, education funding matters, and, most of all, teachersmatter.
The President has provided temporary support for more than 400,000 educator jobs in the face of state budget cuts caused by the recession, and he is calling on Congress to provide support to 325,000more – a step that would help the recovery and strengthen state schools for years to come. This is partof a wave of education reform spurred by President Obama – including encouraging nearly every stateto raise academic standards with a modest investment through the Race to the Top initiative, offeringstates committed to reform flexibility from the most unworkable parts of No Child Left Behind, andreforming the student loan system by ending billions of dollars in wasteful taxpayer subsidies to banks and instead using that money to directly help more Americans pay for college.
“Children” will air in Virginia and Ohio on Thursday. Please click
