AP: Bill Gates Lobbies for Better Schools

Bill Gates speaks again…and Congress is listening.

See this AP story where the father of all-things-Microsoft testified on the Hill yesterday arguing that better schools with higher standards and expectations are what’s necessary in America to prevent jobs from going overseas, along with immigration reform. He wants Congress to push for for higher educational standards and to make more challenging coursework available to students, the article says.

“Gates also called on lawmakers to give more resources and attention to improving the teaching of math and science – knowledge essential to many of today’s jobs,” the AP story says.
