Clinton, William Jefferson
President Bill Clinton offers his observations on the economic condition of the country and why it is important for the nation to now direct its attention to the condition of its schools and school construction. The President also emphasizes the need to use budgetary surpluses to bolster Social Security and Medicare, and paying down the debt to help the economy in the future. He argues that the growth of school enrollment in the near future and the need to implement technology in every classroom are important invests that need to be made now in the form of new school construction, the hiring of 100,000 teachers, and the retrofitting of classrooms for technology.
