Unsurprisingly, the part of the speech that we found most interesting was when Obama said:
We also know that when students aren’t allowed to walk away from their education, more of them walk the stage to get their diploma. So tonight, I call on every State to require that all students stay in high school until they graduate or turn eighteen.
And we want to know: What do you think about this?
We asked our high school twitter followers to weigh in, as well. Check some of their reactions in the slideshow below!
