Day 2 post SOTU focuses on early childhood education
President Obama continues his post-State of the Union tour on Thursday by traveling to Decatur, Georgia to talk about quality preschool education for every child in America. He’ll start his time in Decatur off by visiting a pre-kindergarten class in a nearby early learning center. CNN has obtained a letter to parents of the College Heights Early Childhood Learning Center, saying the president would be visiting their school (despite the school system being on winter break.) Parents are encouraged to bring their kids in specifically for the President's visit. His main remarks will be later at 1:20p at the Decatur Recreation Center.
President Obama will return to DC in the late afternoon, in plenty of time to celebrate Valentine's Day with the First Lady (they’ve gone out to dinner two of the last four years).
In addition, President Obama participates in a Google+ Fireside Hangout live from the Roosevelt Room at 4:50p. According to the White House, “During the hangout, which is hosted and moderated by Google, the President will connect with people who are active online to discuss the policies and proposals in the speech.”
