Obama to discuss education policy in Florida - TODAYonline

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will travel to south Florida on Friday after several morning meetings at the White House, including one with an old friend. Chicago Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel, Obama's former chief of staff, will return to the White House for a get-together with his old boss in the Oval Office. In the afternoon, the president will fly to Florida, where he'll visit a classroom at Miami Central Senior High School with former Gov. Jeb Bush and Education Secretary Arne Duncan. During the visit, Obama will stress that improving American education is a shared responsibility, requiring reform at the state and local levels as well as a focus on achieving results. In the evening, the president will attend two Democratic fundraisers before returning to Washington.
