President Obama continued his bus tour of Upstate New York today after spending the night in Auburn. He spent the morning working out at the YMCA and shooting a few hoops with a youth basketball group before hitting the road for SUNY Binghamton.
President Barack Obama riled up a cheering, mostly supportive crowd with a message that he's ready to make it easier to go to college, in his first visit to Syracuse. Obama repeatedly made the case foe the importance of a college education.
"There aren't a lot of thing more important than making sure people get a good education. That is key to upward mobility; that is key to a growing economy; that is key to a strong middle class."
The future of early childhood education is gaining attention as Representative Dan Maffei and local advocates gathered in Syracuse Monday to show support for president Obama’s early learning initiative.
