There is nothing wrong with this speech - they are the same things many of us tell our own children.  Please do not start any drama, just educate yourselves before you jump to conclusions!

i just read it and i think it's great.  should be very inspiring.  i did not detect any of the "brainwashing" so many people were worried about. : )

I thought it was really good, too!  I think the people who are up in arms about this will feel really silly when (and if) they read it!

They will most likely still find a reason not to send their kids on that day.

OMG - I was shocked that the President would ask our children to do such horriable things (sarcasm).  Honestly, I'm dazed and confused about all the uproar.  Where's the brainwashing?  I swear people just need to create drama where there is none!

Before you comment and jump to conclusions, READ THE SPEECH YOURSELF, I did!

I honestly don't like him. But if it were available for my kids to watch, I would let them. Just because I don't like him and don't agree with him, isn't really a reason to keep my kids from watching this. If it hadn't been available to read and review beforehand, and my kids were old enough to actually understand things on a more mature level, I would probably not let them watch it until I had seen it first. I don't trust the man. But if this is word for word what he is gonna say, I think it sounds fine.  (My kids are in 1st and 2nd grade and it isn't gonna be offered in their classrooms)

It is something that every president should do.  I hope it becomes a tradition that every president will follow,  but I doubt it because of all the uproar,

The complainers were not thinking about their children or about education.

I read it and thought it was great too. But I'm a teacher and we got an email saying that we are NOT allowed to show it. It didn't say why.
