WASHINGTON  — With the Hispanic population hitting 50 million, President Barack Obama is turning his attention to education, an issue that resonates strongly with Hispanic voters.

President Obama

Early this week, Obama held a town hall meeting at a D.C. high school where two-thirds of the students are Hispanic. It was the type of center-stage treatment that, when it comes to issues of concern to Hispanics, is usually reserved for immigration.

Obama told the town hall it's critical to have a diverse, well-educated workforce, while noting that the youngest students include many Hispanics.

Obama is trying to hold onto credibility within the Hispanic community just as he needs to hang onto that critical voting bloc for his 2012 re-election bid.
