 And US President Barack Obama is selling education reforms as a key measure to improve America’s sluggish1 economy. He says investing in early childhood education will ensure the US remains2 competitive.

 
“Right out of the gate, it helps prepare our kids for a competition that's never been tougher--a competition for good, middle-class, well-paying jobs. And we are competing now with countries like China and South Korea and Europe, all of which are serious about educating their children. So at a time when a company is able to move anywhere they want in the world-- and a lot of times will make the decision based on where they can find the most highly skilled workforce--it is absolutely imperative3 that we make sure that the United States is the place where we've got the best-trained, best-educated young people.”
