Clinton, William Jefferson
The President of the United States uses the occasion of National School Modernization Day to offer brief remarks on the American economy and his administration's plans for improving educational facilities for the nation's children. He mentions the administration's first ever initiative at the national level to build, repair, or modernize 5,000 schools and how it can be financed; a funding initiative to help school districts hire another 100,000 teachers to lower class size; and a proposal to provide scholarships to 35,000 young people. The President also discusses the use of the Internet to link schools and the need for modernization funding so U.S. school buildings can handle the new technology. (GR)
