WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today at 3:00 PM, Education Secretary Arne Duncan, White House Domestic Policy Advisor Melody Barnes, and Deputy Communications Director Jen Psaki will hold a conference call to preview several of President Obama’s upcoming events.

Earlier today, the White House announced that the President will visit Miami Central Senior High School with former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and Secretary Duncan to discuss how winning the future in education will require investments that promote a shared responsibility among everyone involved; reform at the state and local levels; and focus on achieving results.

In his State of the Union address and in his Fiscal Year 2012 budget, President Obama outlined a plan for America to out-educate the competition in order to win the future. His plan calls for key investments in education because the President believes that in order to win the future for this generation and the next, we must win the race to educate our kids.
