Today, I've been fortunate to get an education in Puerto Rico's P-12 system.

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.
This is both an exciting and challenging time for Oregon’s educators, parents, and children.
Thank you all for coming out today—and my special thanks to Dennis Van Roekel and Wendy Kopp for joining me here and to the remarkable group of educators and leaders in the field who are participating in our panel discussion.
