NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - President Barack Obama says Mitt Romney's spending cuts would cripple schools while his tax cuts shower more breaks on millionaires.

And he says Romney's running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan, has already helped thwart efforts to rehire teachers laid off during the recession.

In a rally at a high school in North Las Vegas, Nev., Obama said GOP stinginess on education is "unfair to our kids" and "foolish for our future."

Obama's remarks were interrupted briefly by heckling. When the shouting subsided, he told the crowd, "That young man probably needed a good teacher."
