Presidential Town Meeting
on Education Standards

 Audio and Video

Question 1Answer
Mr. President, I am David Hardesty, President of West Virginia University, we welcome you. Adopting national standards involves changing a lot of things in America. It involves a cultural change in many respects, especially if those standards are historically different in school district. I wonder if you would identify the major impediments to the adoption of such a program and how we, as educators and parents and community leaders, can help you address this important initiative.
