Barack Obama's Address To School Children

Could you imagine the outrage from the left if George W. Bush had demanded that the public schools close the books and force their students to watch him on television? Well, I supposed there would be no reason for outrage since the teacher's union would not allow for it.

On the surface you may not recognize this as yet another maneuver of indoctrination by the left to create a Hitler . . . I mean, Obama Youth Corps. However, Michelle Malkin has written a brilliant piece exposing the objectives of the administration.

This is a must read:
Obama’s classroom campaign: No junior lobbyist left behind

Some highlights from her article:

Education Secretary Arne Duncan dispatched letters to principals nationwide boasting that “This is the first time an American president has spoken directly to the nation’s school children about persisting and succeeding in school.” But the goal is not merely morale-boosting. According to White House event-related guides developed by the U.S. Department of Education’s Teaching Fellows, grade-school students will be told to “listen to the speech” and “could think about the following:”

*What is the President trying to tell me?
*What is the President asking me to do?
*What new ideas and actions is the President challenging me to think about?

So when the Department of Education directs schools to gather children ‘round the TV monitors for Obama’s pep talk and then do this…

• Create posters of their goals. Posters could be formatted in quadrants or puzzle pieces or trails marked with the labels: personal, academic, community, country. Each area could be labeled with three steps for achieving goals in those areas. It might make sense to focus on personal and academic so community and country goals come more readily.
• Write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president. These would be collected and redistributed at an appropriate later date by the teacher to make students accountable to their goals.

…parents have every right to worry about their children being used as
Political Guinea Pigs for Change.

I suggest to every parent that you ask your child how this was handled in his or her school and address any concerns you may have to your school's principle and board.

    Malkin is a wingnut, so no I cannot bring myself to read or listen to her jibberish! Khaki did Reagan and Bush Sr talk to the kids? YES, and they even had the nerve to put politics into their speechs. Give me a friggin break, Obama will simply tell the kids to work hard and stay in school. You people are an embarrassment to your party and the cause of its downward spiral.
