President Obama plans to televise a speech directed at school children during the busy back-to-school season. His staff says that the speech will encourage kids to work hard and stay in school, but critics are comparing the speech to something that seems more sinister.
The LA Times notes that one critic wrote, “I am absolutely appalled that taxpayer dollars are being used to spread President Obama’s socialist ideology.” Schools in several states have decided not to air the speech in response to the controversy.
What do you think? Would you mind if the President directly addressed your children? Do you think it’s worthwhile for kids to watch it, or would you prefer to keep politics out of the classroom? You tell us!
