"As the father of four children, I am absolutely appalled that taxpayer dollars are being used to spread President Obama's socialist ideology. The idea that school children across our nation will be forced to watch the President justify his plans for government-run health care, banks, and automobile companies, increasing taxes on those who create jobs, and racking up more debt than any other President, is not only infuriating, but goes against beliefs of the majority of Americans, while bypassing American parents through an invasive abuse of power.


"While I support educating our children to respect both the office of the American President and the value of community service, I do not support using our children as tools to spread liberal propaganda. The address scheduled for September 8, 2009, does not allow for healthy debate on the President's agenda, but rather obligates the youngest children in our public school system to agree with our President's initiatives or be ostracized by their teachers and classmates.


"Public schools can't teach children to speak out in support of the sanctity of human life or traditional marriage. President Obama and the Democrats wouldn't dream of allowing prayer in school. Christmas Parties are now Holiday Parties. But, the Democrats have no problem going against the majority of American people and usurping the rights of parents by sending Pied Piper Obama into the American classroom.


Obama as Pied Piper? I am not sure the image of right wingers plunging into the river is what he was going for.

Dont you think that Obama would have woke up to the fact that the conseratives are a bunch of lieing bastards and and give up on his partisanship plan and force the democrates to either pass the health reform or lose the congress in the next election. I wouldent vote republican if jesus himself ran as a republican candidate, but I dont think he would have anything to do with this garbage that is now the republican party. And the newspapers are as bad as the republicans talking about a minority as though they were a majority. It seems if your a loud obnicious sob the papers print whatever you say without referance to the true facts.

How dare the President of the United States talk to students about staying in school and working hard?

Quote:
At 12:00 p.m., Eastern Time (ET), September 8, 2009, President Barack Obama will deliver a national address to the students of America. (Please note that this is a change from the originally scheduled time.) During this special address, the president will speak directly to the nation’s children and youth about persisting and succeeding in school. The president will challenge students to work hard, set educational goals, and take responsibility for their learning.

Well, as an adult, I would like equal time by the President, where he would ask American adults when was the last time they took a book out of the library. As long as he campaigned on "change," he could offer us the change of not being a nation of non-readers, and knowledge by popular culture.

Perhaps, as a Black man he should broach the politically incorrect thought that there might be many less than intelligent Caucasians in the country. Oh my!

Parents dub Sept. 8 'Keep Your Kids at Home Day'
Widespread movement to opt-out of Obama's televised speech to children
Posted: September 03, 2009

Following widespread concern about President Obama's nationally televised address to schoolchildren, many parents and schools are opting to forgo the Sept. 8 speech.

School officials have been asked to take a break from normal educational activities to allow students to view the speech from the president and participate in recommended brainstorming exercises following the broadcast. Obama will give the speech at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Va. The speech is scheduled to broadcast live at 12 noon EST on C-SPAN and at whitehouse.gov.

But parents across the nation are complaining about the speech taking up valuable classroom instruction time and possibly "indoctrinating" young children.

...

In Utah, school districts are taking precautions ahead of the speech, according to KSL 5 News. Salt Lake City School District is advising schools to have teachers notify parents if they plan on airing the address in class, and then allowing an opt-out. Some principals will be sending home notices if their schools plan to show the speech.

One Utah father told the Deseret News he will pull his four children out of school rather than allow them to watch the Obama broadcast.

"We will go on a picnic and read the Constitution " learn something useful," he said.

Wisconsin school districts have been hearing from concerned parents, according to the Associated Press. Palm Beach County, Fla., public schools may not run the broadcast. In Columbia, Mo., a district spokeswoman said kids won't be seeing the speech at all.

Meanwhile, Atlas Shrugs' Pamela Gellar blasted the White House and the Department of Education for spelling errors in its "Indoctrination Day" announcement, noting that she will keep her children home from school on Sept. 8.

As a conservative, it wasn't the President's speech that caused the outrage as much as the accompanying lesson plan offered by the Administration. You'd think that a speech urging students to work hard, accept responsibility and stay in school would include discussion about how those same students should work hard, accept responsibility and stay in school. Instead this idiotic administration sends out plans focused almost entirely on the President (what do you want to say to the President? How could you help the President? Read books about Presidents and Barack Obama)...which reinforced the whole cult of Obama thing.

Only after this huge outcry in protest did they see the light and revise the language of the recommended lesson plan. It also certainly didn't help when a public school in Utah decided to show Demi Moore's and Ashton Kutcher's "'I Pledge' allegiance to Obama" video to their students as a way to encourage their students toward community service.

I tend to see this as just another Obama Administration blunder which they've corrected. While my kids are out of public school now, if they were younger, I wouldn't object to having them attend Obama's speech.

@slkshock7,
Past presidents have addressed students without the big stink. Reagan's was highly partisan, yet he was allowed without protest. I detect bigotry in all this.

Bush couldn't clear his throat without 8 satires, 3 protests, and 2 calls for impeachment.

And yet he interacted with students without it being a national crtisis.

@slkshock7,
I'm sorry, but you should really re-write that intro. It should read, "As a knee-jerk, fraidy-cat pansy terrified of exposing my children to an articulate leader who I'm scared will undermine my 6-18 years of parenting in less than an hour, it wasn't the President's speech that caused me to pee my pants as much as the idea my children might come to think for themselves...."

@DrewDad,
clearly you do not understand the peril, drew.

what if he encourages the children to use enquiring mind? what if he suggests that there is more to life than check books and the good book ?

Whatever benefits the President's talk can have with students, I do not understand why the same benefits cannot be obtained by the regular educational system? In other words, in my opinion, the message may be that teachers cannot instill the same motivation in students as a very important national figure might be able to. What does that say about society? The cult of celebrity is the way to teach?

Notice, the President's wife is not giving the speech. Does this mean there is a particular problem with motivating male students? Perhaps, too few male students have adequate male role models? Then I would value having someone speaking to male students that can talk about how he (whoever) valued the male role model he had from his Dad, and how young male students should realize that one day they too can be a good male role model for their children. By the way, the President did not have a good male role model in his youth. Perhaps, he does not qualify for this effort, if some professional opinions were solicited?

It was perfectly okay for ex Pres Bush to address these kids next week, but Pres Obama was denied. - edgarblythe

ARLINGTON " The North Texas school district that didn't show President Barack Obama's speech to schoolchildren during class last week has canceled a field trip to see former President George W. Bush.

About 600 fifth-graders in the Arlington school district were supposed to see Bush speak at the new Dallas Cowboys stadium next week at an event for the 2011 Super Bowl.

But Arlington schools Superintendent Jerry McCullough said Monday that the local and national attention over the issue has become a distraction.

School districts in Texas and at least five other states didn't show Obama's speech to the nation's schoolchildren last week. Three days later, the Arlington superintendent apologized but said teachers could play the recorded speech anytime.

McCullough also said he understood how the district's actions could be viewed as favoring one event over another.
