Have read the speech and are still not sending your child to school?
I read the speech, and I think that it is fine. It is the basic speech that both bushs, and clinton have addressed before in school. If you are not fine with "stay in school, Keep up the good work, etc" then it has to be another issue for you.
Don't want to admit that you could possibly be wrong for once?
But I think people have taken this out of proportion. If this had anything "political" in it. Which it doesn't! I would have had a bit of a problem. But this is nothing!

My son's school says that they aren't showing it because of logistical reasons but they encourage anyone interested to view it on the website. I never intended to keep him out of school.

For the love of Jesus...how many people are SICK AND TIRED of THIS topic. Oh and sick of people asking this question and NOT LISTENING TO THE ANSWERS!!!!!
Its NOT THE SPEECH honey, its the WH inserting its OWN curriculum into the school and wanting to control the childrens perceptions after the speech is given!
Can we call for a discalaimer at the top of these questions so we don't have to even open them!

My children will be at school. Even though their school won't beshowing it (partly because because of logistics) I will tivo it and let them watch it with me.
They should have made this a public svc announcement recordable so kids could watch this during the appropriate lesson/timing.
The issue WAS NOT THE SPEECH, it was the Department of ED's 'lesson plan' and questions that were the problem.
The Department of Education should focus on why the children who STAY in school are ranking lower than most other industrialized nations. Yet we spend more $$ per student than any other nation... This would be better use of taxpayer money INSTEAD of developing some poorly written questions that focus on what the children SHOULD do for the government.
