LAS VEGAS (AP) — President Barack Obama keeps a focus on education for the second half of his campaign swing through Nevada, a state considered critical to his winning re-election.

Obama meets today with teachers and speaks at Canyon Springs High School in North Las Vegas, one of the most economically downtrodden communities in the U.S.

Education also was the theme on Tuesday, when several hundred people shouting “four more years” greeted Obama at a community college in Reno.

Nevada voters helped Obama win the White House in 2008. This year, Nevada leads the nation in unemployment, bankruptcies and foreclosures.

Obama is making frequent visits to Nevada and spending millions in the state while polls continue to show him in a tight race with Mitt Romney.
