Obama School Speech
In Baltimore for the weekend and I read about some of the more rural areas of Maryland that were going to ban the President’s “Stay In School” speech because, well, I’m not sure. But apparently its not just rural Maryland abut all over the country. The NY TIMES has an article which reports:
Some parents said they were concerned because the speech had not been screened for political content. Nor, they said, had it been reviewed by the State Board of Education and local school boards, which, under state law, must approve the curriculum.
“The thing that concerned me most about it was it seemed like a direct channel from the president of the United States into the classroom, to my child,” said Brett Curtis, an engineer from Pearland, Tex., who said he would keep his three children home.
“I don’t want our schools turned over to some socialist movement.”
OMG. This is the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES! Who are these people who don’t want their children listening to the POTUS when he tells them to stay in school? Ugh. So distasteful, such awful people.
