Obama to discuss education and US innovation

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama has a busy day ahead of him.
Thursday morning, he'll meet with a bipartisan group of congressional lawmakers at the White House to discuss the reauthorization of the No Child Left Behind education program.
In the afternoon, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will lunch with House Democratic leaders.
Afterward, Obama will sign the John M. Roll United States Courthouse Bill. It honors the judge killed in last month's shooting rampage in Tucson, Ariz., by naming a new courthouse after him in Yuma.
Later, Obama will fly to San Francisco to meet with business leaders in technology. They'll discuss the shared goal of promoting American innovation and his commitment to new investments in research and development, education and clean energy.
