Numerous press reports over the weekend said that President Obama would focus on education -- likely the cost of higher education and the importance of job training -- in his State of the Union address on Tuesday. But those reports generally had little detail and higher education lobbyists said that they also lacked details. The Obama administration has highlighted the issue of college costs,and may return to that issue, but the federal role there may be limited -- especially with state legislatures either directly or indirectly guiding tuition policy at public institutions. The president has also several times proposed major job-training initiatives involving community colleges, but had had limited luck winning funds from Congress.
