Mr Obama will address the schoolchildren and exhort them to “do more, do something for your country…..” and “Obama will address students “about the importance of persisting and succeeding in school” at 1 p.m. Eastern at the WhiteHouse.gov website. The announcement said the federal Department of “is encouraging educators, students and parents to use this opportunity to help students get focused and begin the school year strong.” The government also is publicizing a list of suggestions for students and teachers to do in preparation for the speech, including studying Barack Obama’s writings and presidency. Obama had announced the speech during a child reporter’s visiting the White House.
Not everyone is happy about it though…..”You can call it what you will but Obama Youth or Hitler Youth … This is much too slippery a slope, this day and age with the role of government becoming more invasive the last thing I want is for ‘them’ to get a tooth into my kids,”
He might just want to try and make a difference in kids education by persuading them to do well in school……But then again, his record so far makes one wonder…what will he say? The NEA has already indoctrinated so many children already, so what will he say to make a real difference?
“Obama Youth Corps” anyone?
