The White House has posted President Obama’s talk to school children that will be piped into classrooms across the nation Tuesday September 8th, 2009 at 9 a.m PDT. You can click here to read it.
It appears President Obama will avoid any mention of divisive political initiatives and will urge students to work hard in school. In the speech released today he turns to stories of other successful students to make his case.
Lesson plans had been sent out in advance of the speech. They apparently asked students to consider what they could do to “help the president.” These words helped ignite a political firestorm in which conservative critics accused the White House of trying to indoctrinate children to Obama’s political agenda. The administration later changed the wording of the assignments.
Please weigh in on how you feel about the President’s talk tomorrow.
