FCCLA Making A Difference
The final tally, Candidate Barack Obama had 51% of the vote and Candidate John McCain had 49%. This is the ninth presidential election in which delegates to the annual National Leadership Meeting have cast their ballots. Since 1968, FCCLA members have correctly elected as president, the eventual winner of the actual November election; with the exception of 1992.
Barack Obama will reform No Child Left Behind:
Obama and Biden believe teachers should not be forced to spend the academic year preparing students to fill in bubbles on standardized tests and he will improve the assessments used to track student progress to measure readiness for college.
Invest in early childhood education:
The Obama-Biden comprehensive "Zero to Five" plan will provide critical support to young children and their parents. And they will help states move toward voluntary, universal pre-school.
Make college affordable to all Americans:
Obama and Biden will create a new American Opportunity Tax Credit worth $4,000 in exchange for community service. It will cover two-thirds the cost of tuition at the average public college or university and make community college tuition completely free for most students.
