First Lady Announces 'Better Make Room' Campaign

Here in the U.S., first lady Michelle Obama aims to get more students to continue their education.

On Monday, the first lady launched the "Better Make Room" campaign. It encourages teens and young adults, dubbed "generation z" by the White House to continue their education beyond high school.

The initiative is a part of the first lady's "Reach Higher" program, which is designed to expand educational opportunities for young people nationwide.

And, as we're recording this episode, the first lady is actually on her way to Akron to promote the new campaign with basketball superstar LeBron James. We'll show you pictures and tell you more about her visit on the next show.

That brings us to our question for this week... we want to know, if the first lady visited your school, what questions would you have for her? Let us know and we'll show some of your responses next week.
