WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama is joining President Barack Obama's efforts to get the United States on track to have the highest percentage of college graduates by 2020. Mrs. Obama will speak to student's Tuesday at a high school in Washington, just a few miles from the White House. According to excerpts released ahead of her speech, the first lady will tell students that meeting the 2020 goal "is going to take young people like all of you across this country stepping up and taking control of your education." The first lady will also draw on her experience as she seeks to encourage lower income students to attend college. Mrs. Obama grew up in a working class family in Chicago and went on to Princeton University and Harvard Law School.
