    The superintendent of our local school district will not allow President Obama's televised message to school children to be aired on campus ,Tuesday the 8th , due to opposition by concerned parents . A small win , but a win nonetheless . Good job , keep it up .

    That's good news. Now if all the other schools would just follow suit.

    I think these same parents should pull their children out of school all together. That way when the Chinese take over, they will make better little drone workers.

    The superintendent will probably get fired. You don't cross the NEA and the Obama Administration and expect to get away scott-free.

    Our school is offering the option to participate or not. I asked my son what he wanted to do, and he said " Dad I don't mind to go. I will enjoy a good laugh. " LOL

    That's my boy.:clap2:

    Nicely put.

    Small win, but a beginning.

    We need to take back public education, and re-establish, as its priority, a love a leaning and an appreciation for same in others.

    Sadly, the priority is now social engineering, and whenever we see phrases such as 'social jusice' or 'equality,' realize that 'education' as a priority has been demoted.

    The following is from a real eye-opening article:
    "..., Sol Stern found the one book that the fellows had to read in full was Pedagogy of the Oppressed, by the Brazilian educator Paulo Freire.
    This book has achieved near-iconic status in America’s teacher-training programs. In 2003, David Steiner and Susan Rozen published a study examining the curricula of 16 schools of education—14 of them among the top-ranked institutions in the country, according to U.S. News and World Report—and found that Pedagogy of the Oppressed was one of the most frequently assigned texts in their philosophy of education courses.
    The pedagogical point of Freire’s thesis : its opposition to taxing students with any actual academic content, which Freire derides as “official knowledge” that serves to rationalize inequality within capitalist society. "
    Pedagogy of the Oppressor by Sol Stern, City Journal Spring 2009

    This, I believe, is the real enemy, not the President addressing the students for an hour.

    The right has sunk to a new low with this little stunt.

    Here's an idea: Keep you kids out of public schools altogether so they can grow up to be as ignorant as their parents.

    Or else cough up the dough and send them to private school.

    Fuckin' morons!

    Too bad Obama can't be shut up nationwide.
