Young reporters from Scholastic publications–part of the Scholastic News Kids Press Corps—interviewed Pres. Obama on July 15. The video has just been released today. The interviewers were ten-year-old Topanga Sena of Orlando, Florida, and twelve-year-old Jacob Schroeder of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
TOPANGA: Mr. President, I live in central Florida. And some of my friends and some children in my neighborhood have had to live in hotels because their parents lost their jobs and lost their home to foreclosure. What would you say to kids and families who are struggling in this economy?
