    This is a wise decision as our country offers unlimited opportunities for education; this Obama administration has managed to make education here more convenient. Let us look at some benefits offered here before we talk about the proposed changes by the Obama
    administration.

    The proposal of the Obama Administration with regard to Education

    The budget of 2015 by the President is a reflection of the President’s belief of education being a vital investment. The request made by the President for $69 billion in appropriations which are discreet is a representation of an increase of nearly 2 percent for education.

    Three-quarters of this funding is for special education and financial aid for the students who are in college. 23 percent of the budget seems to target reforms and specific areas which are designed to bring major changes in the opportunity for education for all the students.

    The many reforms proposed by this administration is inclined towards making education more affordable and accessible to all the classes, including the lower middle-class.

    School Leaders and Teachers

    According to the Obama administration, just as all students should have access to all leaders and
    teachers, in the same manner, educators should be able to get all the support required to personalize learning.

    This can be done with the help of technology. The proposal of ConnectEDucators would be able to help with the funding so that educators can make good use of technology and data so that they
    are able to provide instructions which are career-ready for the students.
