At noon onSept 8th the President will be welcoming America’s students back to school – after all, sometimes they need a little extra motivation after a glorious summer. The President has spoken often about the responsibility parents have for their children & their education, but in this message he’ll urge students to take personal responsibility for their own education, to set goals, & to not only stay in school but make the most of it.
To help make sure as many school districts, classrooms, & students are able to get this message we have launched a resources page where you can find out almost anything you’d want to know. There’s information on how you can watch it on TV or on the internet, classroom activities that teachers can engage their students in around the speech, even the satellite coordinates for school districts that want to access the feed.

I've got to say, I wasn't particularly stressed about it in the first place. My son's school won't be showing it (they did not cite parental intervention as the reason, but had many other legitimate reasons), but I will view it online and then have him watch it with me later.

Nope, I never was stressed because the minute I heard about it I made the decision to keep the kids out of school that day. I started contacting neighbors, friends, and relatives urging them to do the same. There will be many empty desks in classrooms across the country on Sept 8, thanks to grassroots efforts. There are still parents who don't want their childrens' heads filled with his crazy ideas. We don't need him "encouraging our kids to stay in school" where they'll just be indoctrinated with political bull shit.
