Biden, Education, & UNI...
Biden talks about education priorities
By JENS MANUEL KROGSTAD, Courier Staff Writer

CEDAR FALLS --- Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden said he will make college affordability, teacher pay and early education among his top educational priorities.

At the University of Northern Iowa on Tuesday, the Delaware senator warned of dire consequences if the U.S. does not take actions to improve its education system.

"I am convinced the future of America in the 21st century depends on how we deal with education in the 21st century," he said. "This is far beyond the issue of education, in terms of giving people opportunities. This is a national security issue; this is about the economic future of the United States of America."

Biden started the education forum, sponsored by Lee Enterprises, with lighthearted banter. Biden's alma mater, the University of Delaware, will play UNI in a Saturday playoff game. Biden noted that his entire family --- including those on his wife's side --- have graduated from Delaware, so his allegiances run deep.
