Education and perhaps immigration are on the agenda Friday as President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama travel to Miami.

The first couple plan to stay in South Florida throughout the weekend -- though the schedule could change depending on events in Ukraine.

On Friday, the Obamas visit Miami's Coral Reef High School, where the president will speak about "how a quality education has never been more important to economic success in this country," the White House schedule says.

Obama will also announce a new program to help students fill out and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. The application is required for students to receive federal student aid, including Pell Grants and federal student loans.

The Department of Education says that more than 1 million high school seniors every year fail to file student aid applications.

Obama's discussion of his education agenda is a follow-up to the proposed budget he unveiled earlier this week.

The president and Mrs. Obama plan to spend the night in Key Largo, Fla., for now.
