YOUR FEELINGS ON OBAMA'S SPEECH & GUIDED CURRICULUM?

AFTER READING THE GUIDED CURRICULUM SENT TO PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO DO WITH CHILDREN AFTER THE SPEECH I OPTED TO KEEP MY CHILD HOME. DID ANYONE ELSE? I DON'T MIND PRESIDENTIAL SPEECHES FROM EITHER PARTY, I ENCOURAGE MY CILD TO LEARN SEVERAL VIEWS BECAUSE I DO NOT BELIEVE YOU CAN MAKE A CHOICE KNOWING ONE SIDE OF THE STORY BUT I DIDNT AGREE WITH THE CURRRICULUM. DID ANYONE KEEP THEIR CHILD HOME FOR THE SPEECH OR HAVE THEM SKIP THAT PART? HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT IT?

  • NO and I am glad my child and her school was afforded the opportunity to rise above this bullsh!t and let the president speak. Nobody was absent from her class either.

  • I thought his speech was wonderful! He didn't say anything wrong and the SUGGESTED curriculum I thought was good and if his speech inspires even ONE child to do better in school then i think it was worth it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the PRESIDENT of the united states giving a speech to the younger generations and i wouldn't care if it was a republican or a democrat! I really did like Obamas speech!

  • What it really boils down to is that some parents simply don't like Obama. So they don't want their children to like him either. If they let their children hear him, they might risk them liking him. And that would undermine their prejudice

  • FYI, all of my Republican friends also thought the speech was great and used only for its original intent of inspiring students to take school seriously. I appreciated the absence of politics but of course, those who dont like him will find a way to make it political.

  • The speech was what I expected. Once the Department of Ed admitted to poor wording and CHANGED their 'curriculmum', I didn't see anything wrong with it.


    Just Imagine if the Republicans pursued an investigation and hearing like the Dems did to Bush I...

  • I submitted the requested letter to the school to keep my son out of it. I need my son focusing on his math, spelling and reading skills vs the president's ability to hear his own voice at any given time of the day on national tv.
