Parents who want to keep their kids out of school on Sept 8, may I make a suggestion???

I have an alternative which I think might be more effective than making your child miss a day of school. It will send a clear message as well....



Meet with the principal and teacher prior to Sept. 8. Tell them you do not wish your child to miss a valueable day of school so early in the year, but you do not wish your child to be involved in the "Obama activity." Tell them this lesson does not fit into the curriculum, you do not think your child is old enough to handle a speech like this, you disagree with the White House providing lesson plans, and you want to preview and watch it with your child first. As a parent, you have the right to all curriculum and lesson plans. Ask your child be given an alternative assignment that day, preferrably in an adjoining room. YOU HAVE THAT RIGHT! If they refuse, then proceed to keep him out of school. If they agree, watch how many others will request the same! Like it?

  • I have done this and the school has sent out letters with a signature slip to request your child do other activities in another room.

  • I think it is all BS to begin with. When I was in school Bush talked to all the students and even though every one thought he was a J-A no one pulled their child out of school for that day.

  • Remind me again where Bush was when the planes hit...? Oh that's right, a CLASSROOM. The paranoia I am seeing on these questions is absolutely unbelievable.

    Bush did not do anything at all like Obama is planning.
