He still hasn't announced his big education plan, and he seems way behind the polls, but now he's got a big education ad. Whaddya think?
The script: My parents weren't rich. My father left me when I was very young. The one thing I was able to get was a great education. We should give every child the same chances that I had. By investing in early childhood education and recruiting a whole new generation of teachers. But government alone is not going to solve the problem. We need parents to turn off the television and instill in our children a sense of excellence. We've got to ask more of ourselves if we want the kind of world class education that they need.
Thanks to a friend for letting me know about this.
