Obama to speak on Libya, hold education town hall

President Barack Obama is giving an update on Libya in a televised speech tonight.

It's scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Eastern time from the National Defense University in Washington, D.C.

The White House says Obama will talk about the actions taken with allies and partners, the transition to NATO command and control, and U.S. policy from here on.

In the morning, the president will take part in a town hall meeting at a multicultural high school in Washington. He's slated to talk with students and parents about the importance of education in "winning the future." He'll also focus on Hispanic educational attainment.

The town hall will be broadcast later on the Univision Network at 7:00 p.m. Eastern time.
