President Barack Obama has a new legacy: as the president who made education a central component of his legacy.
Obama’s tenure as president has been a long one, one that has seen his administration push through the Education Department’s creation of new standards, as well as an unprecedented push for the use of online learning.
As the nation prepares to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act, the president is already pushing a new generation of educators, as he makes a series of announcements aimed at boosting the use and accessibility of digital learning tools in schools and on the job.
This month, he will also be taking the unprecedented step of issuing a national charter school plan, one of his first major public actions.
But what will this new education secretary really accomplish?
The history of the Obama era As we celebrate the birth of our nation in November, we should take a moment to appreciate just how much has been accomplished in just the first eight years of Obama’s presidency.
From the first days of the administration, the focus of the White House was to move away from the “politics of envy” and to focus on the lessons that education had to teach the nation.
It was this goal that drove the creation of the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCEES), which was dedicated to creating the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) and the nation’s testing systems.
The NCEES was created to be the clearinghouse of all the research and data that would help inform the creation and implementation of national educational policy.
While NCEERS data sets were initially limited to the academic year of 2005, by 2011 the president had expanded the scope of what it could look at, with the creation, in effect, of the Department of Education.
And then, as we look at Obama’s last term, it is worth remembering that his administration was also the first in history to create a new Department of Energy (DOE).
In that role, Obama set the groundwork for the new DOE, which was designed to focus heavily on energy, climate change, and the environment.
And he was determined to do whatever he could to make the DOE more accessible to students and educators across the country.
The DOE also brought in new officials from around the world to work closely with the White Houses Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) to develop new technologies that would enable teachers to communicate more effectively across the globe.
Obama also took a step to make higher education more accessible, which he announced in 2009, when he established the Higher Education Opportunity Act.
The Higher Education Act opened the doors for millions of young Americans to receive a bachelor’s degree in the first year of college and offered financial aid to those who were eligible.
This new law was an important first step in creating a more equitable college experience.
In fact, the first graduate students in the country to receive federal financial aid were students who received their bachelor’s degrees from the University of Texas at Austin.
By the end of the presidency, however, the Obama administration had lost much of the momentum behind higher education and had largely abandoned the idea of a universal college education.
And by the end, the DOE’s mission had been defined by the DOE as primarily focused on climate change and climate policy.
But the administration was not done yet.
In 2010, the President signed an executive order called the Climate Action Plan that aimed to move toward an energy-based economy, which would have a profound impact on education and the economy.
The goal was to reduce the United States’ reliance on foreign oil, which in turn would lead to increased fossil fuel use in the United Nations, as the U.S. began withdrawing from the Paris Agreement.
The Obama administration also announced a series to invest in the construction of energy infrastructure in the states, which included a $1.3 billion grant to build the Keystone XL pipeline.
The plan was to increase the number of jobs created by investing in infrastructure and creating new industries.
The Administration also had a new role in climate change diplomacy.
Obama had a major role in negotiating the Paris climate agreement, which aimed to cut carbon emissions and create a carbon-neutral economy.
And with the Obama Administration on board, he launched the National Climate Action Agenda, which put climate and energy policy in the context of national security and economic development.
The climate and environment and the climate and the energy and the national security agenda, all of these new initiatives put the emphasis on a more inclusive and equitable economic and national security policy.
The Climate Action plan also created the Climate and Energy Initiative, which began the process of developing a strategy for energy-related investments.
In the process, the administration set up a National Energy Council that would lead the country on energy policy and climate change.
And the DOE and the Department and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) would coordinate efforts on energy and climate issues across the federal government.
And in 2016
