We want to be your partner in improving education. Im told that theres a saying here -- a tray full of silver is not worth a mind full of knowledge.[1] So well help more children learn how to read. Well bring more American teachers here to help teach English, and more Lao teachers to America to strengthen their English. And Im proud to announce that an initiative thats very important to me and to my wife Michelle, an initiative called Let Girls Learn, is coming to Laos and Nepal. (Applause.) We believe that the daughters of Laos have just as much talent and potential as your sons. (Applause.)
