Remarks by the President During a Classroom Tour in Miami, Florida

Miami Central High School
Miami, Florida

3:25 P.M. EST

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you so much, everybody.  Look, I could not be prouder of you.  I couldn’t be prouder of your teacher and your principal.  The reason we came down here is because this is a model of what’s possible in so many schools across the country that were having trouble just a few years ago.  Because of great leadership, we’ve been able to turn it around.  And I can just tell that the way everybody is presenting themselves and the seriousness with which you take your work, you guys are all going to succeed, and you’ll help our country succeed, too.

So, all right?  Keep it up.  Okay.

END
