Indirectly, Obama is Talking Boys Issues

His defense of Race to the Top here in the Times lays out the stark numbers behind the need to get an education beyond high school -- something far more males should be doing.

From Obama's speech to the National Urban League:

"It's an economic issue when the unemployment rate for folks who've never gone to college is almost double what it is for those who have," Mr. Obama said, according to prepared remarks. "It's an economic issue when eight in 10 new jobs will require workforce training or a higher education by the end of this decade. It's an economic issue when we know countries that outeducate us today will outcompete us tomorrow."
