New Direction

In remarks delivered at Bell Multicultural High School, located a short distance from the White House, the first lady began a new push for education. Obama told students that no matter what their plans or dreams for the future may be, they must "do what it takes to continue your education after high school" and build a foundation for a successful life. She later reiterated these and other goals in an appearance on BET's 106 & Park.
