Parents Not Welcome at President's School Speech By: Michael Noyes | 2009-09-04 BOZEMAN Parents of students in Bozeman schools may not be welcome if they want to watch the Presidents address to students on Tuesday morning with their child.
Bozeman Public Schools Superintendent Kirk Miller said the presidents address falls under the schools policies on guest speakers. That policy states that, Unless the principal approves otherwise, the teacher will not allow non-class members to hear the speaker.

Please take a look and pass along as you feel appropriate. And have a good weekend! Carl

How the hell did Montana ever get so communistic?
Californians? and Hollyweirdos....
Liberal teachers and a lot of rich actors, everyone else is normal.
Bill Ayers and Progressives writing the curriculum for decades.
The fact that parents would be refused entry, or that anyone would be refused entry, is very disturbing.
If there is nothing to hide, and this is not an indoctrination... oh, wait!
I would pull my child out of that school pronto! No one should tell a parent they can’t attend anything at a school that child attends. That is just stupid!
What difference would it make unless they have something to hide!
Good find! Strange for Montana in my way of thinking.
Tha district sounds completely bassackwards. Parents do not need permission from a district employee to see their own child.
Actually it sounds illegal.
By that standard, it's not only parents, it's the Superintendant, principal, and all other school employees including teachers who can't attend either since they are "non-class members".
What a strange school district.
Exactly..and the employees sound brainbwashed into believing that parents are a disruption. A televised speech equivalent to a guest speaker? Yah, rrrright.
I am trying to think of a nonsinister reason for such a rule but haven’t come up with one yet. Anyone?
That policy states that, Unless the principal approves otherwise, the teacher will not allow non-class members to hear the speaker.
I’m sorry but that’s just plain creepy. Just who do they think is in charge here?
If the district was unhappy with the policy...they merely vote the school board out...and the county education director. It’s that simple. Obviously, they don’t care.
If the locals think this is a big deal and they can’t stop it....they can merely cut the power line and bring the school to 1888-reality.
It sure does...
I have a feeling that school district is going to be experiencing a rapid enrollment drop starting this week.
