Thank you, everybody.  (Applause.)  Everybody, have a seat.  Well, thank you, Alberto, for that introduction and, more importantly, for your outstanding leadership of the Miami-Dade public schools.  I thank all of you for joining us.  We are here to take another step toward making sure that all of our kids get the education that they need in the 21st century.

And it’s great to welcome so many committed educators to the White House.  If you need, by the way, a note to excuse your absence -- (laughter) -- let me know.  (Laughter.)  You're all kind playing hooky today.  (Laughter.)

We’ve got superintendents here from more than 100 school districts -- as close as just across the river in Arlington, to across the continent in Alaska.  And we are joining a lot of folks over the Internet, as well.  In a few minutes, all of you are going to sign a pledge to make sure that your districts are doing what it takes to be ready for the future.  And we’ve also got some people here who share your commitment to education, including members of Congress and our Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan.  Where is Arne Duncan?  Where is he?  He’s gone!  (Laughter.)  He’s playing hooky, too!  (Laughter.)  No, I'm sure he’s got some very important thing -- (laughter.)  Poor Arne, he’s being called out right now.  (Laughter.)
