The White House has confirmed that President Barack Obama will be in Wisconsin on Wednesday, for a speech on education to be delivered in Madison.
The speech at J.C. Wright Middle School in Madison marks the President’s first trip to the Badger State since June, when Obama stopped in Green Bay to unveil his plans for overhauling the nation’s health care system, and his first Madison stop since the campaign.
According to the White House, Obama will meet with students, teachers and school officials and deliver remarks on strengthening America’s education system. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will travel with the President to Wisconsin. The speech will be by invitation only; the audience will be comprised primarily of students, teachers, parents and local officials.
