Obama's Record on the Workforce—PICTURES

June 1, 2012

Here's part of President Obama's record on workforce policies:

FUNDING: Obama has been a strong proponent of education funding. In 2009, he dedicated roughly $100 billion of his $787 billion stimulus package to education, according to the Education Department. He has staved off the most draconian of Congress’s proposed cuts to education programs, and he saved Pell Grant funding.(AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)

RACE TO THE TOP: The 2009 stimulus package allocated $4.35 billion for the Race to the Top fund, to be distributed among states for education reform. By January, the initiative had helped one of every three states, while using less than 1 percent of total education spending for the program, according to the White House.(AP Photo/Charlie Riedel)

COMMUNITY COLLEGES: Obama announced an $8 billion “Community College to Career Fund” in February. Touted by Jill Biden, the goal is to help community colleges and businesses train 2 million workers for high-demand industries.(AP Photo/The Kansas City Star, Rich Sugg)
