UPDATE: I had to take my oldest to have some lab work done ordered by her doctor so she did not attend school today but we did watch the speech together. I told my daughter we may not agree with the President but we need to respect his position. The only thing she said was I remember him from January. I explained, “Yes, you saw him at school for the inauguration.” She asked what that was and I explained. She also liked the music they played the end and remembered we heard it on the fourth of July. This is about all she said. We had a nice discussion. I only wish this could have been done in the evening so other parents could have had the same opportunity. It was a good speech. It was the afterward I did not care for!
I heard about this yesterday. Our school is sending home an opt out letter. Some schools in our area are not showing it and some did not send the option of an opt out letter.
I did read the speech which I posted earlier but I found this comment posted on Michelle Malkin’s website quite interesting.
Here is an article written by Newt Gingrich’s daughter. I thought this was really good too!
According to the white house website, the speech starts at 12 PM EST.
Hot off the presses here is the text from President Obama’s much anticipated speech.
Here are the much anticipated worksheets that are given to the teachers. This looks like an all day event, good grief!
Pajama’s TV posted a really good article written from a mom on this very topic.
Michelle Malkin has a neat article on how you can approach your child’s school and have an opt out choice.
They have tweeked the worksheets and they will be putting the speech online for parents, students and teachers to preview Monday, Sept 7th!
