Political will

 In a difficult time like this, a leader should understand what are the primary problems of the nation and act on it with utmost determination to fix them.

Last night, the US President announced in his State of the Union addressed universities and colleges that the higher education on notice he said. "Higher education can't be a luxury— it's an economic imperative that every family in America should be able to afford." What Obama showed was leadership, vision, courage and political will.

When can we find our own  politicians allocate their pork barrels to train college students for high-growth industries that would provide financial incentives to colleges and universities who offer programs that ensured their students find work?. When can we find a leader that will say and at the same time act to make college degrees at quality universities affordable?

candor dat viribus alas.
