LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Former President Clinton posed for pictures with students today at a stop at a middle school in Little Rock.  Clinton was on hand at Dunbar Middle School to launch a new program under his presidential foundation that will help students prepare for college entrance exams.

The effort will provide free tutoring for the Scholastic Aptitude Test and other College Board exams.

Clinton is holding several hours of meetings today with organizers of his presidential library.  The facility is to open next year east of downtown Little Rock.

Aides initially said Clinton would spend the night in Little Rock but that apparently has changed.

Clinton passed on an opportunity to weigh in on yesterday's debate among Democratic presidential candidates.  He said he thought all the candidates did well and that their debate skills improve with each forum.
