As students begin their school year, President Barack Obama will deliver his third annual Back-to-School Speech at 1:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Sept. 28 from the Benjamin Banneker Academic High School in Washington, DC.
The President’s Back-to-School Speech is an opportunity to speak directly to students across the country. In past years, President Obama has encouraged students to study hard and take responsibility for their education, urging students to set goals, to believe in themselves, and to be the authors of their own destinies.
Schools across the country can watch the speech live on MSNBC as a special feature of NBC News’ “Education Nation” – part of NBC’s weeklong commitment to education reports and programming across the network’s shows and platforms that began this past Sunday.
The Back-to-School speechwill be live streamed here http://www.whitehouse.gov/live so that schools and classrooms across the country can watch the speech. For more information about watching the speech, please visit www.whitehouse.gov/back-to-school.
