Washington, Sep 15: US president, Barack Obama promised to provide the best education to the American students and encouraged them to compete with hard working students of India and China.

Obama counselled the students, "You've got an obligation to yourselves, and America has an obligation to you to make sure you're getting the best education possible."

Pointing to the tough competitions that come to US from countries like India and China, Obama said, "At a time when other countries are competing with us like never before, when students around the world in Beijing, China, or Bangalore, India, are working harder than ever, and doing better than ever, your success in school is not just going to determine your success, it's going to determine America's success in the 21st century."

"And I know that if hard work could make the difference for me, then it can make a difference for all of you," he added.
