Following a meeting with children and preschool teachers, he says, quote, “If you’re looking for a good bang for your education buck, this is it right here.”The president is traveling for a second day following his State of the Union address, pressing initiatives for his second term. The White House has not said how much such a program would cost. Details would be in its upcoming budget next month.
