President to Deliver Back-To-School Speech UPDATE

 President Barack Obama will deliver his third annual Back-to-School Speech today at 1:30 PM Eastern time from Benjamin Banneker, a public high school in Washington D.C. that placed on the Newsweek list of America’s Best High Schools for 2011. The President’s Back-to-School Speech is traditionally an opportunity to speak directly to students across the country.


The President stressed the importance of earning a college degree, telling the students at Banneker (who have a 100% college acceptance rate) “just getting into college isn’t enough.”  Barely mentioning the soaring costs of a college education, President Obama stressed working hard and earning a degree once there.
