Obama: "Not Everybody Is Going To Succeed"


PRESIDENT OBAMA: We've already talked about what works. Early childhood education works. We know that can make a difference. It's not going to solve every problem, but it can help level the playing field for kids early in life. They're still going to have to work hard. Not everybody is going to succeed, but they'll have a better chance if we put those things in place. Making college affordable. That makes a difference, because we know in part because of the legacy of discrimination that communities of color have less wealth. They have less wealth, it means that mom and dad have a more difficult time financing college. Well, you know, we should make sure that every young person, regardless of their color, can access a college education. (Binghamton University, 8/23/2013)
