Obama taped the 30-second spot, which will begin airing this week, in coordination with NBC’s “Education Nation” initiative.

“We all know that we can have the best schools and the most dedicated teachers in the world. But it won’t be enough unless we fill our responsibilities as parents,” Obama says in the ad. “This year, let’s do our best, so our kids can do their best.”
