Today, Sen. Barack Obama delivered a major speech on the economy and offered this education tidbit:

“I’ll be talking in more detail next week about how we can make our workforce more competitive by reforming our education system, but there’s also an immediate squeeze we need to deal with, and that’s college affordability.”

He reiterated his plan to give $4,000 a year in tax credits for tuition, but I’m most intrigued by any new ideas he’ll have next week to link education reform with the economy. Stay tuned here for updates next week.
