Barack Obama and Education

Barack Obama on his tour of Pennsylvania, speaks here in a town hall style meeting about education, particularly how the no child left behind policy is affecting local schools.

Obama is obviously passionate about this topic - and its yet another effort at putting meat on the bones of his policies. Hillary Clinton and some sections of the media have been critical of Obama for just giving good speeches, but not actually saying much in detail of what he will do if he becomes President.

Over the coming weeks and months, look out for more detail as Obama expands on his policies with real substance. Its a clever strategy - lay out the groundwork, then gradually expand.

And it seems to be working, by many reports Obama is clawing back Clinton's lead in Pennsylvania.
