The President's Radio Address

August 26, 2000

    Good morning. For millions of American children, this is the last 
glorious weekend of summer vacation. Ready or not, they're picking out 
new clothes and packing their school supplies for a promising new school 
    When that first bell rings on Monday, it signals not just the start 
of a new semester but also the highest enrollment in our Nation's 
history. This fall a record 53 million students will fill our 
classrooms. Unfortunately, thousands of school districts are struggling 
to find enough teachers to fill them.
    Today I want to talk about this critical teacher shortage and the 
steps we're taking to address it. For nearly 8 years now, Vice President 
Gore and I have pushed to invest more in our schools and demand more 
from them. We've dramatically increased Federal investment in after-
school and summer school. We've raised standards, strengthened 
accountability, and worked to turn around failing schools. Today, math, 
reading, and SAT scores all are up, and more students than ever are 
going on to college.
    Because America needs good new teachers more than ever before, we've 
set out to hire 100,000 of the highest quality, and we're pushing hard 
toward that goal. Since 1998, we've helped local schools hire a third of 
that total, and this year we've asked Congress for funding to reach 
    We've also provided housing discounts for teachers moving to 
distressed communities and the forgiveness of student loans for those 
who commit to stay. All across our Nation, school districts are looking 
for a new generation of dedicated teachers. In Cleveland, for example, 
administrators hired more than 200 teachers over the summer, but they're 
still looking for another 400. And Cleveland is not alone.
    With a strong economy and such a tight labor market, it's hard to 
find so many qualified professionals, and the challenge is growing. Over 
the next decade, America will need to hire 2.2 million new teachers both 
to handle rising enrollment and to replace those teachers set to retire.
    By working together as communities and a nation, we can meet the 
growing need for more teachers in our classrooms. Today I'm announcing 
the first-ever national on-line teacher recruitment clearinghouse. By 
logging on to www.recruitingteachers.org, school districts can find 
qualified teachers, and teachers can find out where the jobs are.
    I'm also directing Secretary Riley to notify every school district 
about this new tool and to provide them with information about how to 
make the most of it. This will transform what has been a hit-or-miss 
process into a more efficient, effective exchange of information. And 
over time, this site will help us to alleviate the national teacher 
shortage and to bring down class size.
    Studies show what parents already know: Students perform better in 
smaller classes with more individual attention and greater discipline. 
In a few short weeks, Congress will return to Washington hot from the 
campaign trail, but America's families know this isn't just an election 
year; it's also a school year.
    They want Congress to put progress before partisanship and to pass 
an education budget that reflects our national priorities. I urge 
Congress to pass my package of proposals to continue cutting class size 
and boosting teacher quality. These initiatives would provide $2.75 
billion to recruit, train, and hire teachers, to reduce the class size 
and to invest in teacher quality so we can make real progress toward our 
goal of having a qualified teacher in every classroom.
    I also urge Congress to take prompt action on our proposal to help 
local school districts tackle the enormous challenge of modernizing old 
schools and building new ones. The average American public school was 
built 42

years ago, and decades of use have taken their toll. It is high time we 
get our children out of trailers and into 21st century classrooms.
    At the start of this new school year, parents and teachers 
everywhere are telling students to do their best. In turn, their 
families have a right to expect that we, here, will do ours. So let's 
not make them wait another year for the resources they need.
    With more teachers, smaller classes, modern schools, and faith in 
their future, our children will do more than reach for their dreams; 
they'll achieve them.
    Thanks for listening.

Remarks Following Discussions With President Olusegun Obasanjo of 
Nigeria and an Exchange With Reporters in Abuja, Nigeria

August 26, 2000

    President Obasanjo. Mr. President, distinguished ladies and 
gentlemen, members of the press, let me say how pleased I am for this 
opportunity to welcome President Bill Clinton to Nigeria. I am confident 
that by now President Clinton must have felt from the personal meeting 
to the enthusiastic crowds that greeted him the extent of our delight to 
have him among us.
    President Clinton and I have had very friendly and fruitful 
discussions covering all the items and subjects that make up the content 
of our joint declaration which we have just signed and exchanged, and 
even more. I just want to emphasize that for all the shared strategic 
interests between Nigeria and the United States of America, President 
Clinton and myself share a common view that is based on human welfare, 
human development, and human well-being in both our countries, our 
continents, and throughout the world.
    Of course, whatever strategic interests, economic, political, or of 
a social nature, the essence is based on the fundamentals of humanity. 
Also deriving from this is the issue of Nigeria's role of peacemaking 
and peacekeeping in our sub-region, our region of Africa, and under the 
auspices of the U.N., the whole world. Needless to say that this goes 
for the United States, by virtue of her status as the number one world 
power today.
    President Clinton has only just begun his visit, designed so far 
that it will be a memorable one, and we wish you a very pleasant day in 
Nigeria. We welcome you once again.
    President Clinton. President Obasanjo, members of the Nigerian 
Government, members of the press, I think I can say on behalf of the
