In a speech in Alexandria, Virginia, President announces new commitments to give 500,000 community college students industry recognized credentials.
His goal is to lead the world in college graduates by the end of the decade. As well, Obama emphasizes the importance of certification to get a new job, promotion or raise. We can’t wait, he says, as people are looking for jobs and companies are looking for skilled workers to help them compete.
“We have to light more sparks across America.”
