President Obama made a speech to students in Wakefield High school in Arlington, Virgina. He spoke about how in America we have the choice to succeed. Another statement that he made which I agree with is that students have to decide for them selves if they want to achieve their goals. His message is to do good in school to have a good trade. These days without a high school degree it's more difficult to obtain a well paying job or even maintain one.
It is also better to put education first before playing xbox or watching t.v . The main problem is that for us to take advantage of the education that is being handed to us. Teachers have the job to inspire us and parents have to keep us on track but it is to stay on task and grab the bull by the horns. The part of the deal is if you are going to grasp the opportunity. As an American I hold these rights.
English class can bring the artist out of me and build an author in me. Math and science can help me be the new greatest inventor or find the cure against a new deadly virus like the swine flu. Economics can help me if I want to be a big stock broker. The thing is am I willing to take care of your school work? I think President Obama made a perfect point because a nation without intelligence is not a nation at all. With the problems with the economy right now I think President Obama is investing in the future.
When President Obama said people who did not know the English language and a student who has been going through life saving sergury and still are achieving their goals. I thought in my mind I have no excuses to leave school without a degree. Here he said "Young people like Jazmin Perez, from Roma, Texas. Jazmin didn’t speak English when she first started school. Hardly anyone in her hometown went to college, and neither of her parents had gone either. But she worked hard, earned good grades, got a scholarship to Brown University, and is now in graduate school, studying public health, on her way to being Dr. Jazmin Perez." He also stated it here in a paragraph "I’m thinking about Andoni Schultz, from Los Altos, California, who’s fought brain cancer since he was three. He’s endured all sorts of treatments and surgeries, one of which affected his memory, so it took him much longer – hundreds of extra hours – to do his schoolwork. But he never fell behind, and he’s headed to college this fall."
In conclusion I think his plan is a good plan. Another reason why I think his plan is a good plan is because I share the same one. I want to achieve his goal that is set for me and his plan so I can obtain my degree and go to college.
