McCain Criticizes Obama Over Education Policies

Posted: Updated:
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Republican presidential candidate John
McCain is warning an influential black organization that rival
Barack Obama's ideas are not always as impressive as his rhetoric.
Addressing the National Urban League in Orlando, Florida, on
Friday, McCain said Obama opposed education reforms that would help
underprivileged students.
Obama was set to address the Urban League on Saturday.
"If there's one thing he always delivers, it's a great
speech," McCain said. "But I hope you'll listen carefully,
because his ideas are not always as impressive as his rhetoric."
McCain told the group that equal access to public education has
been gained but asked, "What is the value of access to a failing
school?"
