As President Obama prepares for a day-long Inauguration celebration, we’ll look at the prospects for education in America, and our opportunities going forward. A few months ago, we teamed up with a group of journalism students at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School. Using social media, we tracked down people who were born on past Inauguration Days.
This is what they had to say about how America has changed, and where we are now.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
