Today, I've been fortunate to get an education in Puerto Rico's P-12 system. And from the frank discussions at the Summit, to the students and great teachers whom I talked with at the Ines Maria Mendoza Elementary School in Bayamon, one conclusion leaps out. Puerto Rico today is at an educational crossroads.

I am delighted to be here. The U.S.-India Higher Education Summit is supporting educational partnerships that all nations should aspire to empower.
I want to second Secretary Clinton’s vision and support for international partnerships, and our shared understanding that the United States and India mutually benefit from strengthening higher education.

I want to thank you for being here today. Over the past year, all of us in the Obama administration have been joining forces to address and reduce bullying. I believe we've made real progress – but I know that we have a long way to go.

It is great to have the opportunity to talk with the HBCU family once again.
It's been almost three years since the President offered me this job. It has been a wonderful opportunity, one of the best jobs in the world.

For the past week I've been on a bus tour of the Great Lakes Region. Everywhere I've gone, I've talked about the urgent need to elevate education to build a better workforce and an expanding economy.
And yet everywhere I've gone, I've heard a tale of two cities.
