President Obama announced plans on Tuesday to bring high-speed Internet more quickly to the nation's public schools, pledging to make sure students in the United States have every advantage that "some child in South Korea has right now."

After all, Obama told a crowd at a school in Adelphi, Md., "We shouldn't give that kind of competitive advantage over to other countries."

"In a country where we expect free Wi-Fi with our coffee," he said, "we should definitely demand it in our schools."
