Reading is Fundamental
|As many of you may have heard, President Barack Obama is going to address something like 6 school children the Tuesday after Labor Day.|
Apparently the number is going to be so small because many parents are getting all worked up about our president indoctrinating their children and are planning on keeping their kids out of school that day.
Incredible. The president is going to say work hard, stay in school, and get good grades. If that is indoctrination, I think I am for it. As I see it, too many kids, and parents too, by their actions, do not believe these are worthy exploits.
Maybe that explains why education in the US is falling behind the world in many catagories.
Perhaps we should return to a simpler time when instead of indoctrinating our children, our presidents just took a quaint little book and read to the kids.
Here is the text of President Obama's speech to our nations school children.
