I received a letter warning of Obama's plan to speak to public Schools.(vanity)
vanity

Posted on 09/03/2009 2:45:45 PM PDT by BBell

This is my first vanity post ever but I though it worth mentioning. I live near New Orleans and my son attends a public school elementary. I received a letter today informing me that my son's school would be showing Obama's address to the nation's school children on September 8th. It gives a basic synopsis as to what it will contain as well as informing me that I may want to go to www.ed.gov to learn more about it. It also tells me that I can chose to have my child not participate by letting the principal know and that they will find an alternate assignment for him outside the classroom. Has anyone else here recieved any similar letters from their children's schools. My daughter attends a Christian School and I've heard nothing from them but I don't know if they will even show it there, it's a very conservative Baptist School.

Even if 0 had an upbeat message, I wouldn’t want my kid hearing a liar and possibly looking up to a communist.

Take your son out of public school and send him to the conservative Baptist school that your daughter attends!

Kudos to the principal. I would have my children opt out - I wouldn't trust Obama to read the local weather forecast. This is setting a precident, where the President of the USA not only demands that schools carry his message, but also the teachers assign students tasks based upon his talk.

The schools cannot teach basic math, science or reading skills - why are they now expanding their jobs? How about they get the basics covered, so we can at least compete with other 3rd world countries?

I don't worry about my boy, he thinks bambi is an idiot. My daughter really can't stand Bambi. She told an Obama supporting teacher at her school last year that Obama is a baby killer. Left her supposedly religious teacher speechless.

It should be the other way around. Kids who want to be indoctrinated should sign up to leave the classroom to participate and the normal kids should resume their regular lessons. This way Liberals isolate the “weird” kids who don’t want to worship thier cult messiah.

Obama is trying to distract viewers from the Fox live coverage of the discovery hearing on the Kenyan birth certificate in Santa Ana, CA.

Parents who have kids in public school are likely to tune in to what their kids are being forced to watch, than what the usurper doesn't want them to see.

It seems many schools are offering “alternate assignments”...but what are those assignments going to be? Something onerous so your child feels like a fool for not doing the easy Obama “assignment” with his/her peers?

I contacted our Superintendent and Principals and asked them to at least record it for screening, “like they would any other material”

They all liked the suggestion!

I just heard a news story here in Dallas/Ft Worth saying many of the school districts here were NOT show the speech, but would make a link available on the website. Many more are allowing parents to opt their child out of the speech.

There is no mention of an accompanying lesson plans. It just says that they will be showing it and that most students will be viewing it as a replay in their social studies class when the teacher can fit it in.

Every class in every classroom aught to be recorded so parents can see what is being put in their childs head.
Same goes for operating rooms, you should recieve a recording of everything that happens to you after you are sedated.

They don’t want you to keep your child home because they loose money for every child that doesn’t come to school.

Be aware that Sept 8th is also the date that the Obama Birth Certificate comes up in court in California. He doesn’t want you to focus on that.

www.ed.gov.... Download the pdf. file and email the responses back to them. “What were the three most important words in the President’s speech?” Ans.: Communism, kill. thugs. “ What would you like to hear in the President’s next Speech?” Ans. I hereby resign from the position of Commissar of the National Socialist States of America. Come on. YES WE CAN.

Keep him home that day. They won’t get their federal money and you can have a bit of time with your son. I bet the Christian school will not show it. Then YOU’d be paying for them to do that, and I don’t believe the parents would put up with that.

Menu of Classroom Activities President Obama’s Address to Students Across America (Grades 7‐12)

Found this here

My favorite part:
Create a “concept web.” Teachers may ask students to think of the following:
Why does President Obama want to speak with us today?
How will he inspire us?
How will he challenge us?
What might he say?
Do you remember any other historic moments when the president spoke to the nation?
What was the impact?
After brainstorming answers to these questions, students could create a “cause‐and‐effect” graphic organizer.

How will he inspire us? Oh brother!

Oddly enough, here in northern NJ, my kids’ principal says he knows nothing about it and would send a leter to parents before showing it.
