MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — President Barack Obama has left Georgia after visiting an early childhood learning center and giving a speech in the Atlanta area.

Air Force One left the Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta around 2:40 Thursday. Obama visited the College Heights Early Childhood Learning Center in Decatur, just east of Atlanta before delivering a speech at a local recreation center.

During his speech, Obama said he wants to make high-quality early education available to every child in America.

The president singled out Georgia in his State of the Union address as a state that has made early childhood education a priority.
