President Barack Obama delivered his second annual back-to-school speech Tuesday at a selective Philadelphia public school, where he encouraged students to "work hard" and "dream big" to achieve success in school and life. The president explained that he had not always been a serious student, but chose to buckle down and put in more effort on the advice of his mother. The text of Obama's speech was released Monday to allow those with concerns about the content of the speech to review it.
