President Barack Obama shifted his attack to Republican policies affecting students and their parents as Mitt Romney sought to steer the focus of their campaign battle back to the economy.

In appearances in the swing states of Ohio and Nevada over the past two days, Obama accused Romney, the presumed Republican presidential nominee, of wanting to cut aid to college students and money for local schools while extending tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations.

“I got a question for Governor Romney: How many teachers jobs are worth another tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires,” Obama said today in North Las Vegas, Nevada.
