August 31, 1998: Priorities For A Quality Education


I have proposed a comprehensive education agenda with high national standards, more well-qualified teachers, smaller classes, modern schools equipped with computers, before and after-school programs to keep our young people learning in the classroom, and summer job programs to give young people the skills they need to succeed once they leave school.

Today, President Clinton discusses his education and training priorities at an elementary school in Herndon, Virginia. The President will highlight the need for Congress to pass legislation to investment in education so our children will be taught in a world-class learning environment as we move into the 21st Century.

An Education Agenda For The 21st Century. President Clinton is working to prepare students for the 21st Century by proposing increased investments in public school education, expanded access to higher education, and training to ensure success in the workplace.
