Obama Seeks to Boost Hispanic Achievement

President Barack Obama wants his administration to focus harder on improving Hispanic educational achievement.

At the White House on today, Obama is signing an executive
order intended to do just that.

Obama says improving education will help the U.S. compete in a
growing global economy.

The order is supposed to help communities share best practices, strengthen public-private partnerships and ensure that federal programs meet the needs of Latino youths and adults.

The order also establishes a government-wide working group
and a separate presidential advisory commission.

The signing comes two weeks before crucial midterm elections in
which Obama is counting on Hispanics to vote Democratic on Nov. 2.
